Adventure Medics was founded by Matt Sabelman because he wanted to combine two passions in his life. Emergency medical services and a lifestyle filled with adventure. The medics employed by Adventure Medics share this life passion. They are rock climbers, mountain bikers, surfers, endurance runners, kayakers, and much more. They have been around the world providing medical services in all sorts of settings from the frigid cold of the Alaska tundra to sweltering jungles in Costa Rica.
