Jim Elliott, Ron Rispoli, Lita Tomas

Although we normally discuss a different diagnosis each week, we wanted to introduce some forms of Therapeutic Recreation from time to time since Ron & Lita both received their advanced degrees in TR Administration from Aurora University.

A study into the therapeutic benefits of scuba diving by students from the University of Sheffield’s Medical School  published in the Journal of Disability and Rehabilitation under the title: 'Can scuba diving offer therapeutic benefit to military veterans experiencing physical and psychological injuries as a result of combat?' leads us to this week's episode.  Jim Elliott, Founder and President of DiveHeart is here to talk about his organization, and the therapeutic benefits of SCUBA!
