Message from the President (March 2012)

Lausanne, 30th March 2012 

Dear Presidents, Dear Colleagues, Dear Friends,

In the name of the International Federation of Sports Medicine, it is a pleasure and a great honour to invite all of you to participate to the XXXII FIMS World Congress of Sports Medicine which will be held in Rome at the Hotel Rome Cavalieri, on 27 -30 September 2012.

Delegates from the 117 National Associations member of FIMS, sports physicians from all around the world, students, and many invited speakers will get together in Rome to exchange updated scientific results in research, new advances in technologies, academic news to debate on, and the wish to renew a common vision represented by the health maintenance enhancement, prevention and therapy of different diseases through the practice of physical activity, exercise, and sports, and return to sport after injury.

I am pleased to let you download the preliminary programme of the Congress which I kindly ask you to forward to all your National Association Members in order to spread out this information and involve the global sports medicine community in the FIMS World Congress. Therefore, I would be very grateful if you could confirm to me your availability to accept to promote the Rome Congress through the distribution of the enclosed programme to all your Members.

I am confident that the congress sessions, keynote addresses, exhibitions, and ample networking opportunities are a must for everyone involved in sports medicine and I trust you will contribute with your expertise and experience, helping us build and support the future of sports medicine.
