My buddy Caleb Causey from Lone Star Medics has put together the medical education event of the year. He’s hosting a conference in Dallas where all the rock star tactical and wilderness medicine professionals will be presenting. I’ll be attending and teaching a class about legally obtaining and stockpiling prescription drugs in the event of a health care collapse. I attended the event last year and can assure you that it was first-rate. This year should be even better. Check out this link for my AAR of last year’s event.
See the information below and click the link to sign up. I have a feeling that this one will sell out quickly.
|“Field & Tactical Medicine Conference”
This two-day training conference brings together several professionals and instructors from across the US to offer attendees an opportunity to learn about specific subjects related to both field medicine and tactical medicine. The overall goal of the conference is to share the knowledge from various subject matter experts and provide attendees an opportunity to hone their skills regarding field & tactical medicine. A majority of these presentations will allow for plenty of hands-on skills practice. There will be a social mixer where you can hangout, network, and get to know the presenters in a more relaxed setting; the evening of the first training day. The purpose of this event and the subjects covered during this event are for informational purposes only. This event does not qualify or certify any attendee in any skill or professional capacity.Who:
