The 55th EFSMA Executive Committee Meeting has been held on 23th October in Rome, Italy, hosted by the Italian Federation of Sports Medicine.

The meeting, officiated by President Casasco with the presence of the President of the International Federation of Sports Medicine (FIMS), Prof. Fabio Pigozzi, is the first one held in person after a long time, due to epidemiological emergency. It has seen the participation of the Executive Committee Members, both in presence and in web conference.

It was focused on essential themes for EFSMA, such as the recognition of Sports Medicine as a specialty in Europe and the reinforcement of the exchange of knowledge and competences, the organization of next events and EFSMA’s commitment for the protection of health through sports and physical activity in the emergency context.
In particular, this was the last meeting of the Executive Committee before the 12th EFSMA Congress of Sports Medicine that will be held in 2022, when the Elective Council of Delegates will take place one year late due to the postponement caused by the pandemic. For this reason, in view of the upcoming elections, the President wanted to focus on a strategic plan that will allow EFSMA to develop further from a scientific, financial and organizational point of view.
