Event description

Description

The Emergency Medical Minute is excited to host an inspiring evening, centered around medicine, the outdoors, and how they intersect and contribute to one another. Untamed will explore the exhilarating and fascinating world of wilderness emergency medicine, teaching attendees how to survive and care for emergencies in the outdoors from leading medical experts. From the perspective of outdoor pioneers and medical thought leaders, we will also explore the growing evidence of nature and the outdoors as a means to health and healing, one which should be embraced and even prescribed by the medical community.

The event will commence with food & drinks featuring our own beer specially brewed for the event by O Dell Brewing Company and dinner prepared by Mountain Crust Pizza. Guests will hear from a notable panel of speakers from the outdoors community, including keynote speaker Aron Ralston, Quinn Brett, and Stacy Bare. These speakers will be explaining what the wilderness means to them and the positive effects it has had on their health, even in desperate times. Aron is perhaps one of the world’s most famous outdoorsmen. In 2003, during a canyoneering trip in Utah, Aron’s arm became trapped under a falling boulder. His harrowing story of survival - during which he survived multiple days in the wilderness, amputated his left arm with a pocketknife, and rappelled 65 feet to safety -- is the basis for both a New York Times-bestselling memoir and the movie 127 Hours. Aron continues to be an avid outdoorsman and now a nationally renowned speaker. Integrated into these touching life stories, renowned emergency physicians, and outdoor specialists will explore the fascinating world of outdoor medicine and techniques outdoor enthusiasts can use to survive the elements and life-threatening situations in the wild.
