“Founder” of Wilderness Medicine Died

———————-IN MEMORAM———————-

Dr Paul Auerbach, considered the “founder” of wilderness medicine died. 

Cannot post the NYT obit because it’s paywalled.  Perhaps some have access.  The NYT obit is titled “Dr Paul Auerbach, 70, Who Pioneered Treatment of Wilderness Emergencies”

He was the author/co-author-ediitor of “Management of Wildrness and Environmental Emergencies” (along w/ Edward Geehr). He also cofounded the Wilderness Medical Society.

An excerpt from the obit: “Paul literally conceived of the subspecialty of medicine,”

      What a legacy he has left behind though. Think about how many people has he influenced and probably saved their lives by teaching and sharing the idea of wilderness medicine.
