    The Adaptive Scuba Symposium will features speakers discussing the benefits of scuba diving for individuals with disabilities and veterans. In addition, professionals will talk about how the growth of adaptive diving will positively impact the dive industry.

    “We’re at an important crossroads right now. Over the past months adaptive diving has been receiving unprecedented media attention. Furthermore, medical science is increasingly supporting what we in the dive community already know to be true about the benefits of scuba. We believe that scuba diving, as a therapy, is going to take off during the next several years and we want to make sure that the industry is well positioned to accommodate this growth,” said Jim Elliott, president of Diveheart.

    “All of the key players in the diving community are going to be in Chicago for Our World Underwater which is one of the largest shows in the world. It’s a timely opportunity for us to promote adaptive diving,” he said.

    The symposium will be presented by the Our World Underwater Dive Show, Diveheart and Midwest Dive News Magazine. For further information call the Diveheart office at 630-964-1983.
