About

June 4 - 5, 2022
Quincy, California

The 2022 Sierra Nevada Conservation & Wilderness Medicine Conference will be held at an entirely outside venue, the Pioneer Park in Quincy, California!

We encourage all participants to bring a mess kit, a tent, and camp in the park, though you can make other accommodations if you choose.

Find your community in times of crisis. Join us to explore and gain understanding of the natural wonders and medical perils of wilderness settings. Increase your knowledge of how catastrophic wildfires and climate change impact human health. Learn ways to cope with burnout, which is often coupled with depression and anxiety.

The schedule features world-class presenters, recreational opportunities, and workshops relating to wilderness medicine and patient care in remote settings. There will be afternoon skills stations in splinting, wound care, lifts and carries, and more. Additionally, we will be taking an interpretive hike through wildfire areas with an expert in forest management, wildfire severity, and habitat and forest restoration.

This high-quality educational event is brought to you at an affordable price through the combined efforts of Plumas District Hospital, Plumas Health Care Foundation, and The Plumas County Recreation Dept. The conference is open to both healthcare and non-healthcare professionals, including students and residents, and CMEs will be available. Families are also welcome to attend with an accompanying fee.
