DAN Announces Its Four Summer Interns

The Divers Alert Network has announced its latest summer interns, who will get to spend three months at DAN headquarters in Durham, North Carolina.

The four candidates this summer bring a wealth of experience in various fields:

  • Hannah DeWitt will be pursuing dive physiology research with DAN.
  • Elizabeth Helfrich will focus her summer efforts on studying diving and children.
  • Andrea Filozof will be working with the director of injury monitoring and prevention.
  • Abigail S. Dias will be working on the DAN diver safety materials this summer.

According to Petar Denoble, DAN’s vice president of mission:

“Each summer, DAN interns come through the door with unique skill sets and long lists of remarkable accomplishments. It is inspiring to work with these bright young students who have clear and personal missions to make the world a safer place to dive. It is even more inspiring to see what they accomplish after their internship with us. We are so grateful for the opportunity to foster future generations of dive safety leaders, year after year.”
