Changes in Sport Medicine: The athlete — a special patient

2nd INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS FOR ENDURANCE AND SPORT MEDICINE in cooperation with the 31st real,- BERLIN-MARATHON from Thursday to Saturday.


That is the topic of the 2nd INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS FOR ENDURANCE AND SPORT MEDICINE which will be taking place from September 23-25 in Berlin.

The increasing lack of activity and the growing number of overweight people with adipositas have far-reaching consequences for individual health and for the health system as a whole. At the same time, numerous international studies show that exercise can serve as a primary preventive measure or ancillary therapy for almost all illnesses. In light of this background, sport medicine is growing in importance.

Those involved in sport medicine are more than ever thus indispensable for the moderation and transfer of knowledge. Lectures and workshops in the areas of internal medicine, orthopaedics, and nutritional science will serve to further this development.
A few of the main topics will be, for instance, sudden cardiac arrest, diabetes, over-exertion syndrome, as well as oxidative stress and physical training.

In lieu of a pending regulation on preventive medicine, there will be a podium discussion on Friday, September 24, 2004, from 5-6:30 p.m. on the topic: "Prevention: Possibilities and Limitations".

Renowned experts will be discussing the change in paradigms in health care policy from the singular treatment of illnesses to the support of preventive health care from various perspectives.

Dr. Claus Theo Schröder, State Secretary in the Ministry of Heath and Prof. Dr. Hans-Hermann Dickhuth, president of the German Society for Sport Medicine and Prevention
, as well as other leading representatives from health care insurance agencies and from the areas of diagnostic and pharmo therapy will be participating in the round of discussion.

The event which is taking place within the framework of the 31st real,- BERLIN-MARATHON stands under the patronage of the Industrie- und Handelskammer Berlin (Berlin Chamber of Industry and Trade).

The primary supporter of the event is the research and medical company Pfizer, with additional support from Berlin-Chemie, Takeda Pharma, Boehringer-Ingelheim, Gatorade, Novartis and Servier.
