“BASEM also aims to provide support and education to all healthcare professionals involved in the care of athletes and individuals undertaking – or aspiring to undertake – regular physical activity at all levels.”

Paul Fisher, the Head of Physiotherapy and Sports Science for Basketball England and GB Basketball, said: “It’s great to have BASEM on board for the 2017 Basketball Sports Medicine Conference, which is really shaping up to be the best and biggest one we’ve organised to date.

“With the world-class line-up of globally-renowned speakers set to talk about the very latest developments in the field, I’d urge everybody working in Sports Medicine across a range of sports to attend.”
