Survival-Medicine Expert to the Media

Dr. Hubbard, who lives in Colorado, is passionate about sharing his knowledge about survival medicine and general health.
James Hubbard never liked hunting. Growing up in Mississippi, he spent many an hour in a deer blind with his dad, a police officer, but what he really wanted to do was fix things. James Robert, as he was called, wanted to be a doctor.
So that’s what he did. But after over 30 years of family medical practice, James combined his medical training with his outdoorsy roots to become one of the nation’s top survival-medicine experts. Through his popular website TheSurvivalDoctor.com and books, like his latest, Duct Tape 911: The Many Amazing Medical Things You Can Do to Tape Yourself Together and Living Ready Pocket Manual: First Aid, he shares information with hunters, homesteaders, campers and men- and women-next-door who have the forethought to prepare for disasters.
At his website, Dr. Hubbard writes about how to treat a wide variety of health problems when getting professional health is impossible. His evidence-based tips are a combination of modern medicine, makeshift treatments and Grandma’s home remedies—some of which he witnessed while practicing in Mississippi, treating patients from rural areas who couldn’t get to a doctor right away.
Dr. Hubbard has done just about everything you can imagine in family care. He’s worked in clinics, urgent-care facilities and emergency rooms—in small towns and big cities. A graduate of the University of Mississippi School of Medicine, he trained at the acclaimed Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas. He has a master’s in public health and is a member of the American Academy of Family Physicians, American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, American Medical Association and Wilderness Medical Society.
