We will spread this message. We are ready to accept many proposals to start a lasting and profitable speech. ” Franco Picarone, president of the permanent regional council for the issue of nautical and water sports – we want to highlight above all the role of sports medicine for the practice of sport that affects everyone at all levels. These are the first steps of the council (which will be extended throughout the current legislature) that I chair, established by the regional law of which I am a signatory. Those who play sports, whether they are amateurs or not, need the help of a sports doctor and fitness certificates. And we also need a commission that deals with the resources of those who do not get them. But today we must emphasize the importance of the role of sports medicine, which serves to grow the whole sports movement.
“In the County Council – Picarone continues – we voted a provision with which a fund was set up with vouchers to accompany children up to 11 years and living in families with few financial resources, to play sports and take advantage of gyms. and free facilities. We deal with the practice of sport at all levels, trying to encourage it, because we know that the pandemic has been a tough stop for everyone. We have to recover a little bit of life from the sport, which teaches us so much. “The obligation to undergo a medical examination for those who carry out competition activities is already consolidated,” he recalls. Agostino Felsani, vice-president of the Campania Regional Committee of Fisi and regional delegate of Fisn -. It is an unavoidable obligation, fundamental to the preservation of athletes. It is also a way to cover, monitor, a large young age group that hopefully can be increasingly dedicated to competitive activity. It’s practically a health screening, regardless of the sports activity, which I think is important in our country. ” Present at the event, among others, the director of the Postgraduate School of Sports Medicine at Vanvitelli University, Marcelino Mondathe professor of sports medicine at Tor Vergata University, Pierluigi Gargiulo, the sports doctor and director of the Cardiology-Utic Department of the Antonio Cardarelli Hospital in Naples, Ciro Mauro, the Secretary General of the Mediterranean Parliamentary Assembly , Sergio Piazzi and Paralympic athlete Matilde Lauria.
