Dr. Benjamin Honigman is a retired University of Colorado School of Medicine who has spent his career studying the impacts of altitude on the human body. He’s currently the chair of an advisory group with the High Altitude Research Center at the CommonSpirit St. Anthony Summit Hospital in Frisco. “[The] High Altitude Research Center is involved in a project that we call the Healthy Summit Project, and what we're trying to do is determine what the impact of living at eight to 10,000 feet in Summit County is on common diseases. Diseases such as heart disease or lung disease, diabetes, sleep disorders, those sorts of things,” he said.
