Welcome Letter

 

PRESIDENT’S WELCOME

 

Dear friends and family,

 

It is with great pleasure that I announce the organization in Thessaloniki of the 9th Panhellenic Conference with an international participation “Medicine of Athletics in the 21st Century” on 1-3 December 2017.

In today’s highly technocratic era, where life is constantly being altered by accepting the influence of a multitude of factors, exercise remains one of the few moments of true joy. The positive effects of systematic physical activity on the health, physical development and mental balance of man are undeniable.

The success of an athlete today depends not only on his talent or on the persistence of his coach. It is largely dependent on the correct application of scientific knowledge in its training program. The physician along with the coach and the administrative agent are indeed the peaks of the equilateral triangle surrounding the athlete.

However, there are still some questions waiting for their answer. Does sport, in its modern form, really protect the health or the morphological and functional variations of organs with systematic training and especially in championship are manifestations of “pathological” situations? How can health disturbances be avoided during sports, especially sudden cardiac death? To what extent can exercise be used as a means of physically restoring various diseases? How useful is sports activity in some diseases? What are the special medical problems of the “elite” athlete or woman-athlete or child or even senior citizens who continue to exercise? How can diet differentiation or ergogenic aids enhance performance? How can the problem of “doping” be tackled?

Taking all this into account and understanding the need for a fuller update of the medical and sports world of our country in the fields of Sports Medicine, the Laboratory of Sports Medicine of the Department of Physical Education and Sport Science of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki organizes this Conference. The conference will be attended by lecturers and speakers at roundtables, famous foreign speakers and distinguished Greek scientists. There will also be organized applied tutorials and there will be free and posted announcements.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I cordially greet you and I hope that with your participation you will contribute to the successful organization of the Congress.

For the Organizing Committee

The president,

Asterios Deligiannis

Professor of Sports Medicine
