We're excited to announce that Duration Health is partnering with The North Face Global Athlete Team. We'll be providing expedition medical care to this group of world-class athletes in support of their incredible adventures.
The North Face Global Athlete Team includes top climbers, skiers, snowboarders and runners who undertake global expeditions with support from The North Face. Starting this month, that support will include pre-trip medical advice, medications and supplies, and ongoing medical control from Duration Health during expeditions.
"These athletes undertake amazing feats of courage and endurance, and it is a privilege to help keep them safe and healthy in those circumstances. Global expeditions require a specialized level of preparation and care, and I'm pleased to be working with The North Face and Duration Health to deliver that care," said Judith Klein, MD, expedition physician and Duration Health's Head of Expedition Services for The North Face.
"Duration Health exists to support those who dare to 'Go Where There Is No Doctor.' The North Face Global Athlete team embodies that ethos, and we're humbled to be supporting these athletes on their journeys of a lifetime," said Benjamin Jack, MD, Founder & CEO of Duration Health.
