Idaho is home to countless opportunities for outdoor recreation, from hiking to white water rafting to rock climbing and everything in between. But what happens when someone gets hurt in the wilderness, far from an urgent care facility or emergency room? Dr. A.J. Weinhold from ISU’s Family Medicine Residency program and Darin Jernigan, co-chair for the Health Occupations Department in the College of Technology explain tips that anyone recreating in the outdoors should know, and share expert advice as wilderness medicine professionals.
