After a very successful conference in Cape Town in 2019 we welcome you to Pretoria for the 2021 version. Thank you to all who supported us during that event. We want to go BIGGER this time by including South African Sports Medicine Association (SASMA), Life Through Movement International Conference (LTMIC), Physical Activity, Sport and Health for Development in Africa (PASHDA) and South African Society of Biomechanics (SASB) in an International Festival of Sport and Exercise Medicine conference (IFSEMC 2021). We envisage an integration between the associations during this conference, which promises a fruitful and professional learning experience to one and all.
We have developed a full and stimulating programme including state of the art speakers, both international as well as national.
Although 2020 was a challenging year with COVID-19, we hope that 2021 will be the start of a new chapter of exciting and developmental educational opportunities! Enjoy the conference and remember to give us feedback afterwards for us to develop and improve as we continue to work towards future excellence.
