Faculty bios

Reed Brozen, MD

Reed Brozen, MD

Dr. Brozen is a husband and father of one. He is also an emergency and EMS physician, who works as an attending in the Department of Emergency Medicine at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC). He is dual board certified in emergency medicine and emergency medical services. He has focused on trying to find the perfect spot in his Venn diagram overlapping his work in outreach education, international medicine, travel medicine, tropical medicine, air and critical care transport, and much more. He trained at The University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine and EHS Christ Hospital for his emergency medicine residency. He is the Medical Director of the Dartmouth Hitchcock Advanced Response Team (DHART, DHMC’s critical care transport helicopter EMS program). He has been actively involved with the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) serving in many roles from president of the NH chapter, chair of the Air medical Transport Section, to being the current New Hampshire ACEP Councilor. He has taught emergency medicine and wilderness medicine and volunteered time in many countries including Argentina, Canada, Czech Republic, Chile, England, France, Guatemala, India, Italy, Japan, Kenya (and other East African countries while working with AMREF’s Flying Doctors), Nepal, Spain, Switzerland, Tanzania, and Turkey. He believes the whole world should have access to trained emergency medicine physicians and recognize the specialty. He believes that transport of critically ill patients particularly in the air medical setting is an especially resource limited environment. He was the Medical Director for the Upper Valley Wilderness Response Team when it first formed. He developed the Dartmouth Medical School wilderness medicine class and taught it for over 15 years. He is an AWLS course instructor. And Venn diagramming goes on.

In his non-medical time he mostly enjoys being with his family living on their hobby farm or travelling with them. He is a lover of studio arts and theater and in his undergraduate days, before medicine, was an Art major. He has many hobbies but his favorite one is eating.

Sarah Crockett, MD

Sarah Crockett, MD

Sarah’s path in wilderness medicine began early in her undergraduate career as a Dartmouth Outing Club leader and student member of the Upper Valley Wilderness Rescue team. As a medical student at the University of Utah, she became part of the Advanced Wilderness Life Support educational team and helped to develop the AWLS curriculum. She has taught AWLS courses nationally and internationally and has developed wilderness medicine programs for the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth and the DHMC Emergency Medicine Residency Program. Sarah’s interest in austere medicine has led to health care collaborations in rural Mexico, Haiti, Kenya and Samoa. Convinced that becoming an expert in providing the best possible health care in resource limited settings leads to becoming a better health care provider in ANY situation, Sarah has dedicated herself to creating cutting edge educational programs in Wilderness and Austere medicine for fellows, residents, students, and other providers committed to treating ANYONE, ANYTHING, ANYTIME, and ANYWHERE. In her spare time, Sarah enjoys telemark skiing, mountain biking, hiking, trail running and sharing her passion for the outdoors with her husband, four children and anyone willing to listen to her thoughts on “wilderness wellness.”

Nicholas Daniel, DO, DiMM, FAWM

Nicholas Daniel, DO, DiMM, FAWM

Nick is a Midwest transplant, having spent the first several years of life on the rugged north shore of Lake Superior, growing up in Iowa, and returning to lakes and forests in northern New England. After residency at University of Nebraska Medical center, he completed his wilderness medicine fellowship at UMMS – Baystate Medical Center. He then served as Associate Fellowship Director at Baystate until the opportunity arose to help lead the new Wilderness and Austere Medicine fellowship at Dartmouth.

He has taught AWLS courses regionally and internationally and has taught wilderness medicine in such locations as the Adirondacks, White Mountains, Mexico, Africa, Guatemala, Russia, and Panama. He spent a month in the Indian Himalayas teaching medical students while providing medical care, as well as time in Haiti. He has completed his FAWM and earned a diploma in mountain medicine. Nick’s research interests in wilderness medicine include hypothermia, frostbite, altitude medicine, mountaineering psychology, and hiker preparedness.

In his free time, he enjoys hiking, backpacking, ultra-hiking, camping, mountaineering, woodworking, ice climbing, scuba diving, and his most recent interest—sailing. Nick’s love for adventure and experiences have led to a self-supported cycling trip across the United States, travel to over 25 countries, and summit attempts on peaks such as Volcán Tajumulco, Mount Hood, Mount Shasta, Chimborazo, Mount Rainier, Kilimanjaro, Pico de Orizaba, Mount Elbrus, and hundreds of smaller peaks across the White Mountains, northeast USA, and the world.

Anne O'Connor, MD, MsC, FAWM

Originally from Minnesota, Anne completed a residency in emergency medicine at the University of North Carolina and a pediatric emergency medicine fellowship at the Johns Hopkins Hospital. Prior to medical school she completed a master’s in Health Policy and Economics at the London School of Economics in England. She loves skiing of all varieties, climbing, hiking, camping, sea kayaking, canoeing, cycling, gardening, reading, cooking, travel, and renovating her antique farmhouse and Airstream trailer. She and her fiancé have two dogs, two cats and not nearly enough time for all their hobbies!

Although she has had a lifelong obsession with the natural world, it only occurred to her to combine her career in medicine with her love of the outdoors after getting lost in a national park on what should have been a short day hike. In the following years she completed her FAWM, where she not only gained expertise in wilderness and survival medicine but also developed an appreciation for the fundamental link between our experiences outdoors and mental and physical well-being. She also discovered that learning to practice in austere settings is the ideal training for the creative and improvisational thinking necessary in emergency medicine. She believes all people and all doctors are better off with a generous dose of the outdoors, and is passionate about making wilderness experiences more accessible to everyone.

Dr. Trimarco has extensive out-of- hospital operational experience, responding to field emergencies with DHMC’s EMS Medical Director Response Vehicle. He has served as a flight physician for HEMS, a tactical physician for SWAT teams, Medical Director for the New Hampshire Motor Speedway NASCAR Infield Care Center, and has worked with the U.S. Secret Service to provide onsite medical coverage for multiple dignitaries.

Nicholas Weinberg

Nicholas Weinberg, MD

After being involved in the treatment and evacuation of a close friend who was severely injured in a rock climbing accident many years ago, Nick had an epiphany, deciding to pursue a career in emergency medicine while specializing in expedition and mountain medicine, as well as travel and tropical medicine. He has completed his Diploma in Mountain Medicine (DiMM) and is in the process of completing his Fellowship in the Academy of Wilderness Medicine (FAWM). He also completed an emergency ultrasound fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital with a focus on portable ultrasound in austere settings. In the past he has worked as a Wilderness EMT instructor, and his fieldwork has taken him from the Peruvian Amazon where he practiced tropical medicine, to the Everest region of Nepal, where he specialized in treating high-altitude illnesses in climbers and trekkers. Most recently, he worked as the ships physician on a traditional square-rigged sailing ship crossing the Indian Ocean from Indonesia to South Africa; and worked as the physician for the National Park Service for several seasons on an upper mountain rescue patrol on Denali/Mt. McKinley. In addition to his interests in adventure and travel medicine, he is also an avid mountaineer, ice climber, rock climber, backcountry skier, paddler, and offshore sailor.
