Karen Van Hoesen, MD.  


Dr. Van Hoesen is an Emergency Medicine physician at UC San Diego who specializes in undersea and hyperbaric medicine. She has been a diving instructor for more than 30 years. She loves opening the underwater world to the public—including the dangers of venomous sea creatures. Join us as she will discuss some of the

commonly encountered hazardous marine animals found in the ocean, types

of injuries they inflict and how to manage them.
