A Word on 'Mile High' Altitude Sickness
Yes, Denver is really a "Mile High"!! For those of you that live at lower
elevations, you may feel effects of the High Altitude. These effects may
include diziness, fatigue, nausia, and perhaps shortness of breath.
Warning: Drinking alcoholic beverages may aggravate these symptoms.

The best ways to minimize the effects of high-altitude sickness are to get
plenty of rest and stay hydrated with water, vitamin water or gatorade. Use
the water bottle included in you conference bag that you receive upon
registration!! There are several water bubbler stations around the conference
area.

Enjoy your stay at IDUG and get the most out of the Conference.
