The Welsh Exercise Medicine Symposium on 19th September, 2014 will have a fantastic array of world leaders speaking on physical activity, its benefits, controversies, and promotion. There will also be masterclasses on exercise prescription, motivational interviewing, and advances in physical activity measurement (including the launch of the new Welsh Physical Activity Report Card).
Aside from the interactive seminars, keynote speakers will include:
- Dr Ruth Hussey (Chief Medical Officer for Wales),
- Prof Flemming Dela (Professor of SEM, University of Copenhagen, Co-Chair of the Scientific Board for the European College of Sports Science (ECSS); and
- Prof Mats Borjeson (Professor of Sports and Consultant Cardiologist at the Swedish School of Sport and Health Sciences, Stockholm. Chairman of the European Society of Cardiology and Scientific Secretary of the Swedish Society of Sports Medicine).
Building on the success of last year’s inaugural symposium, the congress will appeal to those in Medicine, Physiotherapy, Sports Therapy and Sports and Exercise Science. With over a hundred delegates, the conference also provides exceptional networking potential with future employers and/or options for work experience.
The one day event is on Friday, 19th September, at Swansea University. Attendance is only £15, which includes lunch, refreshments, and a certificate of attendance.
