World Aquatic Health Conference

The World Aquatic Health Conference (WAHC) is an aquatic research forum presented by the Pool & Hot Tub Alliance. This year, we'll deliver unique and relevant education to a diverse group of pool operators, manufacturers, service technicians, facility managers, environmental health officials, academia, pool builders, retailers, and health advocates in Houston, TX, October 12-14.

NDPA has teamed up with the Pool & Hot Tub Alliance (PHTA) to host the Drowning Prevention Symposium—one track of programming—as part of the 2022 World Aquatic Health Conference (WAHC).  This NDPA symposium is included as part of the WAHC registration fee for the in-person event.  Attendees wishing to attend the NDPA symposium virtually may register here.

The WAHC is an in-person event and will not be offered virtually.
