Duration Health

Our Story

As a concerned and prepared citizen, I keep an emergency kit on hand in case of a disaster. I also carry emergency supplies during travel, especially for outdoor activities like camping, climbing and hiking.

As an emergency medicine physician, I have a unique collection of emergency supplies. Because of my access to specialized equipment and medications, and the training necessary to deploy them in difficult situations, I'm prepared to care for myself and others when regular healthcare is unavailable.

I founded Duration Health to bring this same level of comprehensive medical preparedness to my patients, and to provide free and open access to core medical knowledge required in emergencies.

Duration Health helps you stay safe on your adventures with customized kits of emergency medications to have on hand when regular care is unavailable. We're on a mission to legitimize and democratize access to emergency medical care for those who dare to go where there is no doctor.
