WELCOME MESSAGE FROM CHAIRMAN SDSC
Musculoskeletal disorders have been
reported as the top cause of health issues related to non-fatal diseases in
2017. This inaugural Sport & Exercise Medicine Conference brings together
pockets of SEM expertise from across the whole cluster, to collectively discuss
the prevention and management of musculoskeletal disorders, so that our
patients can remain physically active and enjoy a higher quality of life. With
the overwhelming evidence of the benefits of physical activity in all stages of
life, the theme of this conference, "Physical Activity – the New Vital
Sign”, is apt and timely.
I welcome you to join us on this
journey of learning as we move beyond healthcare to health and I look forward
to meeting you at the conference.

WELCOME MESSAGE FROM ORGANISING CHAIR
On behalf of the organizing
committee, I would like to extend our warmest welcome to you for joining us at
the inaugural SingHealth Duke-NUS Sport & Exercise Medicine Conference
2020. The theme of this conference is "Physical Activity – the New Vital
Sign: Systematic exercise intervention”. This is an important milestone
for the SingHealth Duke-NUS Sport & Exercise Medicine Centre as we bring
together doctors, allied health professionals, sport scientists and coaches
involved in the specialty from all across the cluster and around the world to
further our knowledge in this field.
In conjunction with WHO's global
action plan on physical activity launched in late 2018, this conference will
bring into focus the importance of physical activity in all stages of
life. On the panel of speakers are distinguished healthcare professionals
and scientists, both international and local, who will deliver lectures and
presentations on cutting edge information about exercise intervention and Sport
& Exercise Medicine. There will be 4 sessions in the main conference,
covering global trends and initiatives in promoting physical activity, to the
role physical in cancer survivors and hospice patients, to exercise
prescription in pregnancy and menopause, to effective weight management in
clinical and healthy populations. It is
not often that we have the opportunity gather such illustrious speakers who are
leaders in their fields.
This will be a unique opportunity to meet and engage with
like-minded healthcare professionals as we deepen our understanding of Sport
& Exercise Medicine. I look forward
to welcoming you in person at the conference.
