Health Considerations:
Anyone with a heart condition or recent head injury should consult a physician before coming. The altitude can cause shortness of breath and other problems. Some people take 1 aspirin/day several days before leaving to thin the blood and reduce altitude headaches, but please consult a physician. It is recommended that participants start walking as a form of exercise before coming. Anyone with chronic health conditions should inform the group leader and field rep before coming.
