Remember when your mom used to tell you, “Expect the best but plan for the worst”? When it comes to managing a race, most event directors live by this rule. And planning for something as important as medical support helps to ensure that your event participants have a great race, have fun, and stay safe.
“Safe, Simple, Fun – Medical Support Planning for Events” will be presented by Mamie Wheeler, RN, medical director and assistant event director for the Portland Marathon. Mamie has been the medical director of the Portland marathon for 24 years and is also a medical consultant/coordinator for many other endurance events.
In this webinar, Mamie will tell you about:
- The Golden Rules of medical support planning
- Factoring participants, the course, and a budget into your plans
- What your medical support plan needs to cover
- Setting expectations, training, and communicating your plan
Date: Thursday, August 16th, 2012
Time: 1:00 – 2:00PM Pacific Time
After one hour, you’ll be able to create a medical support plan that prepares you to respond to any situation, quickly and efficiently. We hope you can join us!
