Global Activism: Disability Therapy Through Scuba Diving
The organization Diveheart believes in the therapeutic value of scuba diving for people with physical disabilities. Since 2002, they have offered the thrill of weightlessness to people across the U.S. and in Mexico, Israel, Australia, China and the Caribbean. Diveheart works with people with autism, reduced mobility and reduced vision or hearing. An underwater experience can open up physical and psychological possibilities for participants. Joining us to discuss the program is Diveheart’s executive director, Tinamarie Hernandez.
