World Aquatic Health Conference a hit
The 15th annual World Aquatic Health Conference (WAHC) saw its largest attendance ever this year, attracting nearly 600 aquatic professionals from all over the world to Charleston, South Carolina, and to six WAHCity locations across the US and Canada.
Organised by the National Swimming Pool Foundation (NSPF), the gathering provides opportunity for environmental health officials, facility managers, pool designers, academics, service professionals and other industry leaders to collaborate across disciplines, promoting the health benefits of aquatic activity and working to safeguard public health.
For those unable to attend the main conference, lecture tracks were broadcast to six WAHCity locations, which expanded the reach of the conference. Offering eight tracks related to public and environmental health, air and water quality, recreational water illnesses, new technology and facility management, this year’s event presented a wealth of research, as well as an immediate opportunity for participants to engage in discussions with leading professionals.
The 16th annual WAHC will be held in Williamsburg, Virginia, 16–18 October 2019 and early registration begins in April next year. Visit thewahc.org to learn more.
