"It's amazing to be selected among all the great research presented at MHSRS", said Hughes. "I'm proud of the work our team has done to be recognized."

“This is terrific recognition, because women’s specific issues in the diving environment have not been previously looked at in great detail,” said Dr. David Fothergill, science director for NSMRL. “Our epidemiology group is doing great work at developing our understanding of the stressors encountered in the undersea environment.”

"This is a significant step toward identifying the health conditions among women divers, it's a small group that we don't want to overlook", added Hughes.

MHSRS is an annual conference, taking place this year from Sept. 12 - 15 at the Gaylord Palms Resort & Conference Center. This year marks the first in-person occurrence of the conference since 2019.

NSMRL, part of the Naval Medical Research & Development enterprise and based out of Groton, Conn. sustains the readiness and superiority of undersea warfighters through innovative health and performance research.
