October Chapter Meeting: Sick From Too Much Surfing?!

For our October Chapter meeting we have invited Dr. David L. Stone to speak about a new study he and his colleagues at OSU completed on the association between risk-based behaviors with self-reported illnesses among Pacific Northwest surfers.

Although us surfers have high incidental exposure to marine waters, no studies have investigated if surfer risk behaviors (such as surfing during advisories, near an outfall, during a rain event, or use of personal protective equipment) increase or decrease the risk of acquiring waterborne illnesses. Here is a link to the original study from 2008.

Come learn more about what is happening in our waters and to our bodies.
