Dr. Richard Lee, a South Skyline Association board member, has lived in the South Skyline area for 27 years. He was involved in the formation of the South Skyline Emergency Preparedness Organization and has been the medical Director of SSEPO for over 15 years. Rich has been practicing medicine in the Palo Alto area for over 25 years and followed the family tradition of practicing in the Peninsula since his grandfather founded the Palo Alto Medical Clinic over 100 years ago. Prior to being a physician, he worked as a mountain search & rescue volunteer in Yosemite National Park, an EMT and EMT instructor, as well as a ski mountaineering guide, and white water enthusiast and instructor.

He will talk to us about some of the most common types of injuries we might face here in the mountains and how you can use everyday items to alleviate the problem. Perhaps Dr. Lee will share some new uses for duct tape.

All SSA members, and Skyline residents are welcome.
