Keynote speakers and academic organisers

I look forward to being part of this sports medicine conference. It not only provides an opportunity to actively participate in discussions about sporting injuries, but also with access to key research from experts in this field of sports and rugby medicine. The conference will offer an excellent opportunity to discuss and share learnings with peers.

As Chair of the European Section of Sports Cardiology, I’m delighted to be speaking at the Exeter Sports Medicine Conference in 2018. One of our key objectives at EAPC is to educate health professionals on the effects of regular physical exercise on the heart, how to differentiate “Athlete’s heart” from conditions that predispose to sudden cardiac death in our athletes and promote cardiac screening of young athletes. This conference will provide a great platform for education and discussion around the sporting heart as well as provide an opportunity to share valuable research on sports cardiology including cardiac screening, rehabilitation and emergency response planning
