DAN’s Latest Travelers Medical Guide Now Available


The Divers Alert Network announced this week it has published the latest edition of its “Travelers Medical Guide.”

The digital guide was created to help divers, boaters and adventure travelers recognize and manage various travel-related illnesses and injuries, and explains common symptoms, illnesses and treatments.

According to DAN President and CEO Bill Ziefle:

“DAN members are active explorers, and they know that traveling the world requires knowledge and preparation. This new edition of the Travelers Medical Guide was designed to help our members stay safe wherever they go.”

The guide is a benefit of DAN membership, and provides general information as well as targeted advice for specific travel situations. With topics ranging from packing tips to instructions for conducting an on-site neurological examination, DAN says the guide is intended to help people prevent, recognize, and manage travel-related illnesses and injuries.

So if you’re already a DAN member, you can download the guide here.
