Hi, I’m Laura Laperle and I am a Risk Mitigation Project Lead with LSDS. I recently attended the OSAC Academic Working Group Conference hosted by the University of Arizona in Tucson. Private security consultants and various university study abroad programs collaborated ideas and methods to make international travel safer for both students and businesses alike.
We learned about Wilderness First Aid and Emergency Planning, including interactive group sessions preparing us to work through a crisis.
Ultimately, the keys to navigating safely abroad include preparation and knowledge, all of which can be found by working with dedicated organizations like LSDS.
