British Association of Sport and Exercise Medicine Spring Conference 22 March 2018 “Health, Hormones and Human Performance” Covering the Endocrine and Metabolic aspects of Sport, Dance, Exercise Science and Medicine. From the elite athlete to the reluctant exerciser. Aimed at all those members of the multidisciplinary team working with athletes/dancers, plus athletes/dancers and their coaches/teachers.
CPD points awarded from Faculty of Sports and Exercise Medicine FSEM
BASES British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences CPD awarded
British Journal of Sports Medicine Quality International Education Approved
CPD points from Royal College of Physicians applied for
Why? The balance and timing of exercise, nutrition and recovery is key to optimising health and all aspects of human performance. Intricate network interactions between the Endocrine system and metabolic signalling pathways drive these positive adaptations. However, non-integration of these lifestyle factors can disrupt signalling feedback pathways and predispose to maladaptation and potentially disease states.
What? Discussion, led by experienced clinicians and researchers will cover:
· Key role of Sports Endocrinology in health and performance
· Effects of exercise modalities on body composition and bone health
· Machine learning in interpreting biochemical & metabolomic patterns
· Endocrine & metabolic markers in assessing health & training status
· Gut metabolism in supporting health and performance
· Exercise as crucial lifestyle factor in pre-existing metabolic dysfunction
Who? This conference is relevant to all members of multidisciplinary teams supporting both reluctant exercisers and elite athletes. Medics, researchers, physiologists, physiotherapists, nutritionists, psychologists, coaches, athletes. All welcome.
Health, Hormones and Human Performance will be a conference of interest to all those involved with aspiring and elite athletes, including dancers (National Institute of Dance Medicine and Science NIDMS) and those supporting reluctant exercisers through Lifestyle Medicine.
