“When I went for training, some of my friends thought that I’d left for a nice vacation at a ski resort but in reality, the drill was highly demanding and we all made great efforts to become qualified.” –Neurosurgeon Dr. Li Rui

For the past four years more than 40 doctors from across China doffed their ER scrubs and suited up in snow gear to train for the country’s first skiing emergency response team set to deploy for 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics.
