The Most Famous Sherpa

Edmund Hillary’s photograph of his climbing partner Tenzing Norgay, standing triumphantly atop the highest peak in the world, is one of only a few images that can truly be described as iconic. The pair were the first to reach the summit of the Himalayan mountain at 11.30am on 29 May 1953. Edmund Hillary took this photograph using a modest Kodak Retina compact camera loaded with Kodachrome colour film, he kept the camera tucked inside his jacket during the final ascent to keep it from freezing. Hillary apparently refused a photograph when Tenzing offered to return the favour

Sometimes navigating the American healthcare industry seems as difficult and confusing as climbing Everest. Our doctors are truly sherpas.
