If you’ve read our #WEM19 Day 1 Highlights blog, you’ll know that we had a jam-packed first day full of inspiration and learning, looking at Expedition and Wilderness Medicine in all its forms – from the most remote regions of Antarctica to the deepest depths of space.
Just in case you hadn’t had the chance to check out what was on offer (and we highly recommend that you do!!), we thought we’d take a minute to shine a spotlight on one of the exciting workshops that took place…
‘My, What Big Teeth You Have’… Venomous Snakes of North America
Gordon Worley, Assistant Clinical Professor at the University of California, former emergency nurse practitioner, SAR volunteer and disaster responder, lead a workshop looking at all things snake-related, but mainly the dangerous bits – the teeth! Gordon discussed the characteristics of various species of venomous snakes in North America, the methods of identifying them, common myths and misunderstandings, as well as reviewing some of the recent research in the field.
Who: Gordon Worley
What: ‘My, What Big Teeth You Have’… Venomous Snakes of North America.
