In his work as an ER physician, geologist, and professional mountaineer, Dr. Steve Boyer '64 has joined eight Himalayan (third American to summit Annapurna) and four polar expeditions, and done medical work in South and Central America, Antarctica, Africa, and Asia. His most challenging assignments have been with Medical Teams International to Afghanistan, Darfur, and most recently the DRC (Congo), where he travelled across rebel controlled areas doing assessments before crossing into SW Uganda to treat arriving refugees. Steve is also board chairman for education projects in Guatemala and Afghanistan.
