Divers Alert Network has published the latest edition of its Travellers Medical Guide. Created to help divers, boaters, and adventure travelers recognize and manage various travel-related illnesses and injuries, this digital guide explains common symptoms, illnesses, and treatments in an easy-to-understand manner.
“DAN members are active explorers, and they know that travelling the world requires knowledge and preparation,” said DAN president and CEO Bill Ziefle. “This new edition of the Travellers Medical Guide was designed to help our members stay safe wherever they go.”
