about the episode:
This is episode 4 with Dr. Peter Hackett. If you’ve ever wondered how to plan and acclimatize on an adventure at altitude, you can thank Dr. Hackett for starting the conversation.
For those doctors and even some of the high altitude guides out there, Dr. Hackett’s name is well recognized as THE expert when it comes to high altitude medicine. As a climber, emergency physician and researcher he has refined his expertise over the decades.
What is less well known is how a passion for adventure and a willingness to chase an opportunity on a shoestring budget led to over six formative years with the people and mountains of Nepal, which set the stage for the indelible mark he has left on mountain medicine today. Sure there will be some talk about medicine, but I encourage you all to have a listen to the end. This is a story about the courage to take advantage of the opportunities that come your way, and a testament to the positive impact that can come not only to you but to others by saying yes to adventure.
