Invitation from the President of the Internations Federation of Sports Medicine (FIMS)

It is my pleasure to inform you that, after arduous efforts, Mexico is honored to host the major congress of our specialty in its 37th version.

We celebrate and appreciate the support of the International Federation of Sports Medicine, the National Commission for Physical Culture and Sport (CONADE), and the Government of the State of Jalisco; for their trust and support to carry out this outstanding congress, which is already a great success.

This 37th Congress is, definitely, an important opportunity to enhance knowledge sharing, at the highest level, among experts in Sports Medicine and Applied Sports Science. This will have a direct, positive impact on the society’s health (high-performance athletes, amateurs, and general population).

The 37th Congress also reflects, par excellence, an ideal space to attain a high exposure to key actors in the field of medicine and sports.

I invite you all to actively participate in all the events organized for such an important congress. I am confident that your participation will be fruitful and well rewarded with learning. I am sure the program will satisfy your curiosity and your intellectual need.
