Shannon Kenitz is the Executive Director of the International Hyperbarics Association. The IHA is a non-profit organization that educates physicians and parents on the benefits of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) for neurological conditions through research and funding of treatments for families in need.
Kenitz has been working in the field of hyperbaric medicine since 2003 as a prominent advocate for the treatment of special needs children. Her passion to help others was motivated by her youngest daughter, Grace. Contributing her recovery to HBOT, Grace defied the odds and numerous doctors, which served as the catalyst for Kenitz to begin her journey to inform other families about hyperbarics. Kenitz’s work has engaged the interest of people from all walks of life and led her to the U.S. capital to present how the future of hyperbaric medicine can improve the quality of life for thousands of people living with various neurological conditions.
