Staying healthy and safe if you're lost in the woods

Woods.jpg

Hiking in the woods and mountains is a popular activity. But if you take the wrong fork in the trail and get lost, a day of recreation can turn into an exercise in staying safe. This week on WRVO's health and wellness show “Take Care,” hosts Lorraine Rapp and Linda Lowen speak to Dr. Christopher McStay, chief of clinical operations in the Department of Emergency Medicine at the University of Colorado School of Medicine at the University of Colorado. They discuss the basics of surviving in the wilderness for the average person.

More of this interview can be heard on "Take Care," WRVO's health and wellness show Sunday evening at 6:30 p.m.  Support for this story comes from the Health Foundation for Western and Central New York.
