Starting on October 20, the IHF will offer an interesting series of seminars oriented to Sports Medicine. It is especially aimed at the medical bodies of the teams that will participate in the next World Cup in Egypt in January 2021 and at all people interested in these matters, especially doctors, physiotherapists and handball enthusiasts.

The objective of these IHF Sports Medicine Seminars is to deliver topics to Member Federations to reinforce the promotion of the health, safety and performance of our players and to help them stay active to minimize health and injury risks.

These webinars will begin on October 20 and end in mid-December 2020, with a periodicity of one session per week, all of them conducted live by international experts in sports medicine.

The sessions are scheduled for 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. CET (Basel time) with the exception of the initial session next Tuesday, October 20, which will start at 1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. CEST (Basel time) and which will be attended by Dr. Hassan Moustafa, President of the IHF and Professor Hosny Ahmed, President of the IHF Anti-Doping Unit and Director of the activity.
