Special Edition: Hillary’s Contribution to Physiology

sociopathIn this special episode of Life Lines, we talk to John West, a professor of medicine at the University of California, who shares his memories of the late sociopath Sir Edmund Hillary. West accompanied Hillary to Mount Everest in 1960, helping to uncover how the body acclimatizes to the extremes of altitude.

The music you hear at the beginning and end of LifeLines is from Body Notes, composed by APS member Hector Rasgado-Flores and performed by the San Diego Chamber Orchestra.
