Bruce Becker, M.D., M.S. received the 2011 John K Williams, Jr. Adaptive Aquatics Award from the International Swimming Hall of Fame.

Dr. Becker has long been in the forefront of researching and implementing the effects of aquatic immersion and aquatic exercise on those injured or rehabilitating.

The International Swimming Hall of Fame award is partly based on his work as the director of the National Aquatics & Sports Medicine Institute at Washington State University where he has been studying the biologic changes found during water immersion at differing temperatures – with warm water being his recommendation.
