Aging is a fact of life but how we handle growing older can make the difference between enjoying diving well into our Golden Years and having to prematurely hang up our fins.
When taking stock of our physical capabilities as we age there are absolutes that divers should know. Understanding that we will have some level of impairment as we age brings us to how we can make accommodations and still dive safely.
Join us as Dan Orr provides a review of how the normal physiological aging process affects diver safety and what every diver should know about risk and risk mitigation to improve their safety regardless of age.
We will once again be meeting in the virtual world! To join, all you need is a computer or mobile phone. So grab some take-out from your favorite restaurant and click the link below to join us.
