Heading into the great outdoors this summer? Are you prepared if things go wrong?

About this event

Join Atrium Wake Forest Baptist’s Department of Emergency Medicine faculty, resident physicians, and Wilderness Medicine Fellowship for a free and fun event hosted in tandem with sponsors Fiddlin’ Fish Brewing Company and Great Outdoor Provision Company called Bandages and Brews: Stayin’ Alive in the Outdoors.


After two years off due to COVID-19, Wake Forest’s emergency medicine community is excited and ready again to teach hands-on wilderness first aid training and experience with handling common and serious outdoor emergencies.


Attendees will receive practical advice on building a first aid kit, and will learn about animal bites/stings, how to treat sprains, strains and fractures, and ways to stop severe bleeding.
