Upcoming EMS Lecture

True North is very pleased to announce that it will be participating in the “UPMC Morning of Education” on Friday, October 18 sponsored and organized by UPMC Prehospital Care.  This purpose of this event is to provide continuing-education training and credits to EMS personnel and other medical professionals in and around the Western Pennsylvania region.

The theme of the program is the “Outdoors” so all of the lectures will focus on emergency medicine issues in remote locations where definitive medical care is delayed.

UPMC Morning of EducationErik will kick off the day with his lecture “Cool Lessons: Dealing with Hypothermia in the Backcountry.”  He will then be followed by two physicians who will each talk about altitude sickness, then the treatment of venomous snakebites.

All in all, it should be an informative and fun day … Especially since it will which will be held at the Pittsburgh Zoo!
