How can advances in elite performance inform and support public health?
This debate will explore how advances in athletic performance can inform and impact wider public health, examining the connections between the two worlds; what research, science and evidence is available; how innovation can be transferred to public health; what support and infrastructure is required to deliver the transfer and exchange of knowledge and how can this be translated into treatments and preventative interventions?
