At 14,000 feet above sea level, Dr. Christopher Hillman travels on a motorbike among different communities providing healthcare for emergencies and house calls. He often works from atop a glacier and the bamboo bench that serves as his waiting room, seats 60. Logistical problems are often insurmountable and timing is critical. Often patients need to be transported over long distances to receive the necessary care. Equipment must be specially designed to withstand the long, cold winter, and most instruments do not pass the test.
