Brian Gilbert is a graduate of the University of Adelaide and has spent the bulk of his career in travel medicine and more recently has added wine making to his interests. These pursuits have led to the Travel Bug, a Adelaide based medical centre that helps travellers to medically prepate themselves for adventures to far flung places across the globe. Brian has hiked the Inca trail, visited Asia and the Pacific Islands but loves the sight of high mountains and snow. Nepal is the obvious place to visit and enjoy but it is clear to him that others are less fortunate than he and his family. The involvement with this charity will give him a chance to find out more about remote Nepal and he can channel his energies into helping from a medical view-point and by involving himself in fundraising efforts.
