WMS Book Club

WMS Book Club is a quarterly virtual club designed for members to read and discuss books pertinent to wilderness medicine and survival. Registration for upcoming meetings will open approximately one month prior to the meeting date; Zoom meeting information and further details will be communicated via email to those who have registered prior to the meeting. When purchasing your copies of selected books, don’t forget to shop at smile.amazon.com and designate Wilderness Medical Society as your preferred charitable organization. We’ll receive a portion of your purchase and put it back into inspiring others to be alive in the wilderness.
