Mt. Hood Research Forum and Hike

At the end of a long day hike

The Annual Mt. Hood Research Forum and Round Mt. Hood Hike, held from 1994 to 1996, was an exciting, two-day event. At the research forum, interventionalists and industry representatives gathered in informal groups to discuss current research and new devices related to interventional therapy.

On the second day of the meeting, attendees and their families participated in a challenging day of hiking. From more than 120 participants each year, many attempted the demanding 41-mile hike around Mt. Hood in one day. However, what originally started as a friendly "hike of the fittest" became an intense race of competing teams from many institutions and companies. The participants were organized into teams and there was a sculpture of Mt. Hood cast in bronze for the winning team.
