Seat in a window seat while flying into the LAX International Airport, the Long Beach Airport (LGB) or the John Wayne Airport (SNA) and you will see innumerable swimming pools of all shapes and sizes on a clear day.

Outdoor swimming pools dot not only the suburbs of Southern California, but all over the state of California and throughout the United States.

The National Swimming Pool Foundation estimates there are more than 10 million swimming pools from Hawaii to Maine, including more than 360,000 public pools. That is one pool for about every 32 people.

The World Aquatic Health™ Conference this year invited Blue Mind author, Dr. Wallace J. Nichols, and Bruckner Chase, to speak about the unique health benefits of swimming, both in the open water and in pools. “The world needs more people living healthier lives using pools, hot tubs, and aquatic venues. The annual World Aquatic Health™ Conference sessions focus on best practices, new technology, and continuing research.”

Dr. Nichols and Chase will share their perspectives on the latest of aquatic benefits at the 13th World Aquatic Health™ Conference on October 19th-21st in Nashville, Tennessee.
