Divers needed for research survey

Dear Scuba Diver:

I need your help. I am writing to ask you to participate in a anonymous research survey. This survey looks at scuba diving practices and any injuries that result from diving. I am an Emergency Medicine resident and an avid dive enthusiast, I am conducting research into dive related injuries and diver safety, and asking scuba divers from the United States to respond. This short survey is administered through the Internet and will take about 10 minutes of your time.

This project was approved by the Institutional Review Board (the committee that oversees research at this institution) at the Resurrection Medical Center in Chicago, Illinois. If you are willing to help with this study, please complete the questionnaire via the link below and return it as directed. One option (unlinked to responses) at the end of the survey provides space for an email address entry for notification of results if you would like a copy.

Thanks and safe diving

Adam Beckett, DO
