TEMPORARY VENUE! Please join us at 8:00pm
at the Sharaton Tara on Worcester Road in Framingham.
(Only the November & December meetings will be held at this location)
Medical issues play a major role in scuba diving, and well-trained divers must must be fit and understand a wealth of important medical matters in order to practice the sport safely. We all have questions about dive medicine. This month, Dr. Poul LaPlante will present the Club with a dive medicine Q&A, answering YOUR questions about topics like barotrauma, dive fitness, decompression illness (DCI) and other dive medicine issues.
Dr. LaPlante is a self-confessed "wimp" (warm water) diver with over 1,200 dives, and he has handled patients referred by Divers Alert Network (DAN) for over 10 years. Be sure to ask him about his unique distinction of finding a lost former Navy Seal!
