Dear Colleagues and Friends,
The French Handball Federation is pleased to welcome you to this international medical congress: ‘Medicine of Champions, evolving medicine’ organised in association with the International Federation and ASPETAR.
Handball has considerably evolved for over the past two decades. The players have become taller, stronger and faster. How has medicine accompanied or followed this progression? Has it participated in the development of this sport or in the direction it took?
The organisation of the World Championship in France is an opportunity to establish a picture of the involvement of medicine with this sport, worldwide. To compare our practices, to exchange views with other team sports, to observe the results and to consider the different ways for research and prevention which are suggested nowadays such are the aims of the International Medical Congress that will take place of the 20th and 21st of January 2017 at the French National Olympic and Sports Committee in Paris. During these two days, international experts will show their work and discuss it with you.
Sponsors & Partners support, coming from Sport Medicine, Institution or Sport Community is essential to the success of this great event.
We so hope this 2017 programme will capture your interest to join us in the heart of this City of Lights, and share the success of this medico-sporting congress !
