Innovation during these unprecedented times is essential as it enables organizations to pivot and adjust. Although DAN had to cancel its 2020 in-person educational events, we enjoyed connecting with many of you through our 2020 DAN Live webinars and have now launched a 2021 webinar series to connect divers with safety information they need.
Beginning in January, and with a new session each month, the 2021 DAN Live series will help promote a culture of safety and spark community connections online.
Presented by DAN experts from our research, risk mitigation, medicine, training and insurance teams, the new DAN Live series will cover various topics, including fill station safety, ear barotrauma, DAN research updates, the latest information about COVID-19 and diving, and more. Attendees can look forward to a lively presentation, typically lasting between 30 and 45 minutes. Presenters will devote the remaining time to questions and discourse.
Videos of these sessions will be available on DAN’s YouTube channel, DAN TV (www.youtube.com/DiversAlertNetworkTV), to ensure on-demand access.
The first livestream in the series, premiered on January 21, covered how divers can prepare emergency plans customized for any scenario in any location. Subsequent sessions will take place on the third Thursday of each month. For the complete schedule, updates and other announcements, be sure to read the DAN newsletters and follow DAN on social media.
While these virtual sessions are no substitute for in-person events, we believe the new webinar series will foster discussions and connections and make diving safety more accessible to all.
