Global Health Advanced First Aid Course

With my philanthropic travels all around the world with Project C.U.R.E., the potential to experience a medical emergency is high.  I visit people in various medical clinics, hospitals and villages.  I've experienced places that have different food, terrains and climates than I'm used to, and certainly ones that have very different medical care and abilities to help themselves.  When I was told about a 24 hour global health advanced first aid course at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, I jumped at the chance to attend.

What a great experience I had learning new tools to help others.  I learned so much and was part of a great class of doctors, nurses, EMT's and others.  We all worked very hard together in extremely challenging scenarios to learn how to save and help our patients.  In particular, was our last exercise which was an imagined plane crash in the remote mountains of Bolivia.

Enjoy some photos from my class, and don't worry, if I"m ever in the vicinity and you have a medical emergency, I've got you covered!
