Upcoming Events – MSU Leadership Institute

October 8, 7:30 pm – Surviving The Extremes – FREE
Director and Vice-President of the legendary National Geographic Explorers Club, veteran of Mount Everest ("Into Thin Air" attending physician), NASA consultant, surgeon and masterful storyteller, Kamler has climbed, dived and trekked through some of the most treacherous and remote regions of the world. Author of "Surviving The Extremes," Kamler discusses what happens when human bodies are pushed to their limits. Kamler explores the human body’s reactions to heat, cold, pressure, starvation, exhaustion and exposure, and he reveals the human body’s miraculous survival strategies. His multimedia presentation will take the audience on a scientific nail-biter that goes beyond "reality" television shows and proves what survival really means. At the core is a quest for the will to survive and why some can and others cannot summon the power at their moment of greatest need. This free lecture is sponsored by Local Technical Assistance Program of Montana (LTAP), MSU Leadership Institute , ASMSU and MSU Parent Family Association.
