Ben Askins has an undergraduate degree in Outdoor Education and Intercultural Studies with a minor in Swahili. After college he spent several years teaching wilderness emergency medicine and search-and-rescue courses all over the planet before enlisting in the military and serving as a combat medic for over a decade. While in the military, he earned two professional degrees, a Master of Divinity and a Master of Physician Assistant Studies, graduating at the top of his class from the military’s rigorous Interservice Physician Assistant Program.
At Wild Health, Ben has found the opportunity to combine his passions for adventure and medicine as a member of the inaugural Wild Health Fellowship class, health coach, physician assistant, and Director of Operations for our ketamine clinic. Ben believes that Wild Health gives people a roadmap for their own choose-your-own-adventure lifestyle and considers it an honor to work toward healing and optimization with each of his patients.
