Description

We are extremely excited to announce that Sheffield Sports and Exercise Medicine Society are hosting another Physical Activity Symposium on Saturday the 18th of May, at Sheffield Medical School.

Our themes for the day are:

- Physical Activity and Oncology
- Physical Activity and Pregnancy
- Physical Activity and the Extremes of Ages (Children and the Elderly)

We have some exciting speakers and workshops planned for the day

Confirmed so far:

- Dr Camilla Nykjaer (University of Leeds, Physical Activity & Pregnancy)
- Dr Simon Nichols (Sheffield Hallam University, Physical Activity & the Elderly)
- Dr Rachel Tattersall (Sheffield Children's Hospital, Physical Activity & Children)
- Dr Ali Ali (Sheffield Teaching Hospital, Physical Activity & the Elderly)
- Liam Humphreys & Gabbi Frith (Sheffield Hallam University, Exercise Prescription)
- Dr Helen Speake (Sheffield Hallam University, Communicating the importance of Physical Activity to patients)

...More to be confirmed soon!

We want the symposium to raise awareness for local initiatives that promote physical activity and prescribed exercise, in order to help clinicians signpost and refer patients. We have invited organisations to hold informative stands, and we encourage you all to talk to them to find out more

Confirmed so far:

- Step Out Sheffield (Large walking group in Sheffield)
- Hathersage swimming pool (Prescribed Exercise, and Oncology Exclusive Swims)
- MoveMore Sheffield (Aiming to transform Sheffield into the most active city in the UK by 2020)
- GoodGym (Runners that combine regular exercise with helping the local community)
- Imoves (Aiming to get every school active for 30mins every day by 2022)


At the end of the day we hope you all join us on a mini sporting adventure in the local area (TBC)

Once all speakers and workshops are confirmed we will email out the choices for the afternoon workshops and the days programme. We will also be applying for FSEM accredited CPD points.
