I just wanted to say thank you so much again for leading such a fantastic case discussions session with us on Monday. A number of participants have said how much they enjoyed it - particularly how realistic the scenarios were, and how relaxed and well led the session was.

I hope you are having a great day. We just wanted to thank you so much for giving a great talk about mental health during wilderness expeditions. I know that we all gained great knowledge about how to take care of ourselves and others.

Dr Grace gave a fantastic talk to the Cardiff WEMS society in September 2020 with interactive wilderness medicine case studies. The students found it very thorough and informative and learnt a lot about treating patients in austere environments. Thank you so much Daniel, your enthusiasm and knowledge was very evident!
