Invitation

INVITATION

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

On behalf of the Turkish Sports Medicine Association, it is my sincere pleasure to invite you to join us during the International Sports Medicine Congress and 18th Turkish Sports Medicine Congress which will be held on December 3-5, 2021 online due to COVID-19 pandemic.

"Back to Sport" is the main theme of this year’s meeting with the aim of providing a comprehensive program in order to present the least touched but emerging fields in sports medicine, especially in relation to pandemic. Nevertheless, there will be other topics that may interest you as a practitioner, researcher or academic person.

We believe that online yet interactive congress format will allow us a large participation and the widest dissemination of the available knowledge that encompasses up the scientific program.

Thank you in advance for your interest and participation and we really look forward to welcoming you all to the Congress soon.

Sincerely yours,

Prof. Metin Ergün
Congress President
President of the Turkish Sports Medicine Association
