Healthy Summit Research Project
High Altitude Research Center is studying the effects of altitude on the human body.
The purpose of the Healthy Summit Research Project.
Medical researchers have questioned for years what kind of long-term effects living at high-altitude can have on the human body. The researchers at the High Altitude Research Center hope to answer a lot of those questions. The center, established at St. Anthony Summit Medical Center, is a collaboration between Centura Health, the Altitude Research Center, Division of Pulmonary Sciences and Critical Care Medicine, Department of Medicine, University of Colorado School of Medicine, and many other scientists to find out how living above 7,500 feet affects the health of its residents.
The study has reached a significant number of participants and is closed for research analysis. Stay tuned for research findings and results in early 2024.
