A traditional part of our meetings is the Saturday, "Diver Day" session. This year it's a symposium called "Stay Informed - Dive Safely."

It runs from 8a.m. to 5p.m. on Saturday October 9th.

Speakers and topics will include:

(He'll teach you how to clear your ears and will be bringing along a video otoscope so you can see what your ears look like after all your diving.)

There will also be a scientific session on both diving and clinical hyperbaric medicine on Friday which is more of interest to professionals in the field.

Continuing education credits for physicians, nurses and many other professionals is available for both days of the meeting.
