Annual Symposium 2021: Sports Medicine Association Singapore

EMERGING FRONTIERS: PERFORMING ARTS & ESPORTS MEDICINE

Sports Medicine Association Singapore will hold its Annual Symposium online on 25 September 2021. This year, the Annual Symposium will focus on two emerging fields within Sport and Exercise Medicine – Performing Arts Medicine and Esports Medicine.

+++We are pleased to be able to offer a small number of complementary delegate passes for Members and Fellows wishing to attend the symposium. Places are extremely limited. Please email us if you are interested in attending+++ 

Performing Arts Medicine focuses on patterns of illness afflicting performing athletes, specifically dancers, singers, actors, and instrumental musicians. The symposium will cover the musculoskeletal, neurologic, vocal and psychological aspects of managing these performing artists.

Esports (competitive video gaming) is an emerging world-wide phenomenon that has seen exponential growth despite the pandemic. The health of Esports athletes is however often overlooked. The symposium aims to throw light on this relatively new topic and includes multidisciplinary insights from primary care, musculoskeletal medicine and rehabilitation, psychological medicine and ophthalmology.
