Friday Lectures - Crossing borders between sports & occupational medicine and leisure time & occupational physical activity

Sports and work both positively and negatively impact life of many of us and the medical disciplines involved face similar questions: what is the best way to prevent injuries?, how do we improve Return to Play or Return to Work?, or how do physical activity in leisure time and work interplay and contribute to better health and performance?. This morning we address these three topics and hope the talks will stimulate you to cross the border of your own discipline to see whether the grass at your side is indeed greener than at the other side.
