DAN is offering the third year of the bimonthly diving
medicine/research/safety lecture series. The program helps us expand our
dialogue with local divers and facilitate our continuing efforts to
develop new talks.
This month’s lecture "The Physiology and Pathophysiology of Immersion" will be given by Dr. Neal Pollock.Synopsis of Lecture: Water can be a joy to swimmers and divers. The

support it provides enables us to move in three dimensions with
tremendous freedom. There is a toll, however, that comes with this dense
milieu that we do not see in our normal air environment. This
presentation will consider the effects of water immersion and the
implications for swimmers and divers.
The DAN Lecture Series is held bimonthly on the first Wednesday of every other month, 7:00-8:30 p.m.

Doors will open at 6:15 p.m. for a pre-event social, and light
refreshments will be served. The presentation begins at 7 p.m. and will
last approximately 45-55 minutes. A 30-minute question-and-answer
session will follow.
Admission to the lecture is free, and no registration is required.

We hope you will join us for this special evening — we’ll see you on Wednesday, February 6!

Upcoming Lectures in the Series:

  • April 3: "Managing DCS in Remote Locations" presented by Dr. Nicholas Bird
  • June 5: "The Heart in Diving" presented by Dr. Petar Denoble
  • August 7: "Critical Thinking of Post-Dive Symptoms" presented by Dr. Matias Nochetto
