Monaco hosts confab on injury, illness in sports

MONACO—With much support from Monaco’s Royal Highness, Prince Albert II, Monaco again played host to the International Olympic Committee on Prevention of Injury & Illness in Sport recently.

Monaco also hosted this event twice—in 2011 and 2014.

Prince Albert II was in attendance during the conference held at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco.

Injury and illness to athletes often prevent them from reaching the pinnacle of success. At times, these also result in their decline in performance.

How to find solutions to these problems and avoiding them if possible were among the priorities of the Olympic Movement and all the National Olympic Committees.

Prince Albert II takes a look at the UTC Imaging booth presentation led by Dr. Hans T.M. van Schie during the IOC World Conference held at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco.
And it is this purpose that events such as the IOC World Conference on Prevention of Injury and Illness in Sports are being held regularly.

The World Conference is taking a pro-active role in defining new clinical protocols and providing an invaluable platform of information dedicated to the athlete’s wellness.

The program is very beneficial to the international sports world what with the active participation of many prominent professionals dealing in sports medicine as guest speakers.
