The Alabama Wilderness Medical Assocation (AWMA) exists to provide training and education on the delivery of medical care when help is not a phone call away and immediate assistance is required. We emphasize those mechanisms of injury and disease unique to Alabama and the Deep South, including heat-related illnesses, encounters with wildlife from snakes to stingrays, and the dangers posed by our waterways, lakes, and coasts.
Serving to train both medical professionals and the general public to provide the highest level of care within their capabilities and in the most trying of circumstances, the Alabama Wilderness Medical Association offers a variety of classes and training opportunities.
