The Wilderness Medical Society is keenly interested in fostering
awareness and appreciation among healthcare professionals and
scientists for the research of health-related concerns in outdoor
and wilderness activities. The Society has established the Charles
S. Houston Research Award which provides financial support to
a medical student selected on a competitive basis for a research
project in the field of wilderness medicine. Due to generous
donations, WMS was able to grant two Houston Research Awards
in 2006. Houston Award winners are asked to present their research
findings at this conference upon completion of their work.
