Maritime Medical Access

Francis O'Connell
Thursday, February 18, 2016

For 2016, we've contracted with Maritime Medical Access, a service based out of George Washington University, to provide remote medical consultations for our sailors who may require advice while underway.  Medical situations on-board can be particularly troubling without access to expert advice, and have the risk of developing into more serious conditions without appropriate treatment.

The doctors at MMA will be available to our participants at sea between July 1 through August 31.  The attached file describes the service as well as some important pre-departure preparations you can make to make your passage safer and healthier.
