This week we had a great wilderness meeting during which Dr. Hinds talked about insect repellents. This is a really important topic if you are going to visit one of the regions of the world where infectious agents such as Malaria or Dengue exist. However, don’t forget that Lyme’s disease can be found in our own backyards as well. If you would like to read that paper, it can be found by clicking this link:
If you don’t have the time or energy to read that entire paper, Dar was nice enough to put together a nice review of the article. That can be found here:
Lucky for us, we are going to have a second wilderness medicine meeting this month. Dr. Goldstein is going to be talking about the many uses of triangle bandages. This is going to take place April 5th at 7:30pm at Morgan’s BBQ (267 Flatbush Ave.) so please come and join us and share your knowledge and a drink or 3.
