Dr Paul D Jackson comments: “I am delighted to have been given the opportunity by our Council members to serve in office as President of the FSEM. I’d like to extend a warm thank you to our outgoing President, Dr Roderick Jaques, for an excellent handover and his continued support as Immediate Past President.

“I am looking forward to developing the Faculty and the specialty of Sport and Exercise Medicine, which has an enormous application outside of a traditional sports setting in prevention and public health, with its unique skills in exercise medicine, musculoskeletal medicine and team care.”
