DDRC Healthcare launch weight and health survey


DDRC Healthcare has launched a weight and health survey, with weight currently being a ‘hot topic’ with regard to good health, and never more so since the outbreak of COVID-19.  At DDRC Healthcare, they have data regarding weight trends in divers going back as far as 1990! Back then, in their first anonymous study, their data showed 34 percent of divers were either overweight or obese. Twenty years later, in 2019, the latest anonymous data showed 69 percent of divers were overweight or obese – following national trends.

DDRC’s Maguerite St Leger Dowse said: “This study is intended to get you all talking about, and thinking about, ‘watching your weight and health’! Please take part in this survey and get your dive club/school members to take part as well in DDRC Healthcare’s latest Health of Divers project.

“All the information you give us will be totally untraceable to you, so we would value your participation in this project. There is a maximum of 30 questions in this survey, but you will not have to answer them all; so the survey should only take about five to ten minutes to complete. Please follow the online instructions to the end.”

Questions regarding this survey may be directed to DDRC Healthcare:
