Didi Pershouse Speaking To Transition-Town Putney, VT Feb 18th, 2011

Reskilling for a Post-Oil Health Care System

“Reskilling” is a term used to describe relearning or reviving skills that were essential to surviving in the days before high-tech everything was easily available. In agriculture, this means using hand tools, using oxen or horses to plow a field, etc. What does it mean for medicine?  How do we diagnose and treat illness at times when technology fails due to power outages, rising oil prices, or natural disasters? Are there skills that we are losing that could be useful even when modern technology is available? Where can one learn these skills?

Come to this talk and find out more!
