Excellence in Remote Medicine Award

Antarctic Logistics and Expeditions, ANI's logistic provider, has been nominated for the prestigious new EWM Excellence in Remote Medicine Award for our quality logistical and expedition support in Antarctica. Nominees include the most inspiring personalities and companies associated with the Remote Medicine industry and we are honored to be included. The award will be presented on April 17, 2012 at the inaugural International World Extreme Medicine Conference.

The Excellence in Remote Medicine Award includes two categories: Outstanding healthcare professionals are recognized for their contribution to extreme medicine; and companies are awarded for exceptional contribution to extreme medicine and setting new standards. ALE has been nominated for the EWM Company of the Year 2012 award.

The International World Extreme Medicine Conference will be held at the Royal Society of Medicine, London, from April 15-18, 2012. ANI's Chief Medical Officer Dr. Martin Rhodes, medic Ben Cooper, and Field Operations Manager Steve Jones will join world renowned Physicians and other logistics experts presenting at the conference. The conference is organized and presented by Expedition & Wilderness Medicine (EWM) a leading provider of expedition and wilderness medicine courses for medical professionals. Many of ANI’s Physicians and medics have either trained with EWM or, indeed, run some of their extreme environment medicine courses.
