About This Project
The goal of this project is to determine the factors behind drowning deaths in Turkey, which has roughly four times more than that of U.S. In May 2015 alone, 115 people drowned in Turkey. To start, we will survey families that have experienced a drowning death in the past five years and analyze data from these cases to ultimately build a pilot intervention program. This data have not been catalogued before. Our initial research will provide an important framework for understanding this issue.
