I would be remiss if I failed to recognize the enormous contributions Dr. Keith Van Meter has made to the successful longevity of the National Board. Keith has served as a Board Member for the past 20 years, the first decade of which he generously housed our administrative headquarters within his business office, in New Orleans, AKA ‘The Big Easy’.
Keith represents a key medical and professional link between the Board and the environment of the working diver. Amongst other things, Keith has gone to great lengths to ensure the viability and validity of the diver medic program, and on an international scale. He has done so readily and always without expectation. Some of you may unaware that Keith is arguably the most experienced and capable of diving medicine specialists. He has readily, and frequently, put his personable well-being on the line to enter the medically and geographically remote deep diving support systems. Under some of the most challenging and stressful of conditions, he has literally saved lives and salvaged acutely damaged central nervous systems.
A ‘thank you Keith’ barely seems adequate for all he has done, but it is likely more that he would expect.
