JACKSON HOLE, WYO – Will Smith likes to practice medicine in the field. Like, way in the field.
The Jackson MD paramedic is the medical director of Grand Teton National Park, where he oversees emergency rescues in the toughest conditions. For Smith, also a lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army Reserve, it’s probably a walk in the park. After all, as Disaster Medicine Branch Chief for the U.S. Army Medical Command in San Antonio, Texas, he has been deployed to Iraq, Egypt, Croatia, and Central America.
Smith got a glamorous and well-deserved write up from Managed Care Magazine recently. Writer Howard Wolinsky managed to capture the excitement that is Smith’s life nowadays.
