Dr. Gordon Giesbrecht, A.K.A. Professor Popsicle is retiring from the University of Manitoba, but he's not cooling off just yet. 

Giesbrecht has put himself in many hypothermic situations all in the name of science and research that has helped save lives. He shares he's put himself into hypothermia 40 times for research purposes. 

"In Toronto, in front of city hall, we were doing a demonstration for something and I was walking along and all of a sudden someone yells out, 'Hey Doctor Giesbrecht, you saved my life.' Which is really gratifying." 

While Giesbrecht is officially retired as a professor in the faculty of kinesiology and recreation management as of January 1, he has many plans for the time ahead.
