Health is very present in our daily lives and with the coronavirus its importance has become even more evident. Sport has great benefits in physical health and also in mental health. But there are many aspects about health and sports that are not always well known or that are not addressed much at an educational or media level to reach the population.
In this sense, the Higher School of Health Sciences of TecnoCampus organizes a cycle of conferences on health and sport, with a monthly conference on the last Thursday of each month at 6:00 p.m. from March to November 2021. The conferences are free, require registration, and will be held in virtual format.

The idea is to look for a joint activity that we can carry out across the three grades that we offer at the School and that is of the greatest possible interest to the population. In this way, contribute that grain of sand of knowledge and more in these complicated moments where it is essential to take care of our health, ”says Dr. Noemí Serra Paya, Deputy Director of the Higher School of Health Sciences.
The conferences are open to everyone who is interested in the topics. “With these conferences we want to familiarize people with important concepts of health and sport in a simple way, bring science and its application closer together, also give advice that may be useful on a day-to-day basis, dealing with topics that usually have a great demand and a point of complexity, which are not always dealt with and we consider that they are enriching ”, points out Serra.
