As the largest gathering of extreme medics, we are fortunate to attract remarkable people and world-leading experts, and this next speaker is no exception – we are super excited to welcome RAF Medical Officer Bonnie Posselt to #WEM19!
Bonnie’s passion is in Aviation and Space Medicine, a love that was sparked by her work for the RAF and with a Diploma in Aviation Medicine. Since then, she’s gone on to do a Space Studies Programme in the Netherlands and is currently completing her PhD in human performance using Helmet Mounted Displays.
Bonnie isn’t afraid to get stuck in – she’s experienced first-hand the difficulties of providing medical care to analogue missions and the lack of overarching support system or guidance for medics – something she is committed to fixing!
Bonnie took to the mainstage on Day 3 of the 2019 World Extreme Medicine Conference where she discussed the specific medical care needed for remote and austere analog missions, as we try and prepare for missions to the Moon and Mars.
Who: Bonnie Posselt
What: ‘Medical Care for an Analg Space Mission’, ‘Emergency Medicine in Zero G’ (Panel Discussion)
When: Day 3 (Monday 25th November)
Join us this year where for the first time in WEM history, we’re hosting a virtual conference (17th & 18th Oct) – so you can be inspired from the comfort of your sofa (or, frankly, from wherever in the world you can get online). Book your place today!
