Shallow Water Blackout Awareness Month

On May 25, 2016 Vermont's Governor Peter Shumlin Proclaimed June as Shallow Water Blackout Awareness Month in Honor of Benjamin C. Haller.  This Proclamation will be carried forward and each June the Foundation’s Shallow Water Blackout Awareness Campaign for the summer will be launched throughout the state.

We sincerely appreciate the Governor’s support, which enables us to expand our reach across the state and beyond as it relates to increasing the public’s awareness about the potential deadly effects of unsupervised prolonged breath-holding when preceded by hyperventilating.
