What if you fall and break a bone while hunting – and can’t get to your cell phone?
Lessons from the wilderness could save your life or least get you back home with a good story to tell.
Coming up Thursday at the Smoky Hill Museum, Dr. Jeff Thode will present “Wilderness Medicine” from 5:30pm to 6:30pm.
Dr. Thode, an internal medicine physician in Hutchinson is bringing his stories and practical steps to take during a medical emergency when you are alone and in distress.
Nona Miller with the Museum tells KSAL News that Dr. Thode is part of the official Wilderness Medicine Society, “Which teaches people what to do when they are out in the wilderness and perhaps they break a bone, someone gets sick, they run out of drinkable water,” she said.
“There are certain things you can do to give you a better chance.”
The Smoky Hill Museum’s First Thursday presentation of “Wilderness Medicine” is Thursday, October 1st at 5:30pm.
The event is free and open to the public.
