Miguel plans on returning to his home country after training where he also wishes to help palliate the epidemic of diving related injuries that currently affects the Miskito Indians in eastern Honduras
Nicole Harlan, MD
Although she grew up in Washington, D.C., Nicole has been a longtime resident of North Carolina. She attended Davidson College and trained at UNC in Internal Medicine. She first became interested in oxygen metabolism while studying how oysters respond to hypoxia in the Chesapeake Bay. This interest, combined with a love of undersea and space exploration, led her to fellowship in Undersea and Hyperbaric Medicine. When she’s not in a hyperbaric chamber or daydreaming about comparative physiology, she tries to discover every great spot to hike around Salt Lake City–a difficult but worthy task.
