Do Child Divers Get Injured?

We invite you to join us for the next DAN Public Lecture Series event. Dr. Matias Nochetto will present "Do Child Divers Get Injured?" at DAN headquarters in Durham, North Carolina, on Wednesday, December 5, at 7 p.m.

Do Child Divers Get Injured?

Children can begin scuba diving at very young ages. They have unique physiological features and psychological characteristics that warrant special accommodations. As responsible parents and dive leaders, we want to be prepared to keep them safe. We review what we know about this vulnerable group of divers and discuss reports to DAN about the injuries they experience.

Doors will open at 6:15 p.m. for a pre-event social with refreshments. The 45-minute presentation will begin at 7 p.m. and be followed by a 30-minute question-and-answer session. This event is free, and no registration is required.

We hope you will be able to join us. For more information, please email research@dan.org or call +1 (919) 684-2948, ext. 1260.
