NEW DATE: Registration is now open for the second webinar of ISCA’s HEPA series, which will take place online on 17 November 2022 from 11:30am to 1pm CET. The event is part of our new series of 3 capacity-building webinars organised by ISCA and the members of our newly formed Health Enhancing Physical Activity (HEPA) Experts Group between September and December 2022.

The first webinar was a success with more than 120 participants registered. During this 90-minute interactive online event, 'How to muscle up your game and help tackle the n°1 epidemic in the world', we will explore the contribution of sport and physical activity to non-communicable disease (NCD) prevention.

As a whole, NCDs comprise the number 1 epidemic in the world. Actually, every two seconds a person under the age of 70 dies of an NCD. That’s why we all need to muscle up our games to ensure that sport and physical activity are used as a relevant way to help tackle this epidemic. We promise that this webinar will challenge you to think differently when it comes to this topic.

By attending this webinar, you will gain insights into HEPA for NCD prevention from an expert, Andrea Backović Juričan, a national health promoter at the Slovenian National Institute of Public Health. You will also learn first-hand tips and tricks as well as lessons learned from an existing practice, ‘CoCospo - Cooperative Concept Health Spo’, from Michael Tiemann, Professor of Sport Science at the SRH University of Applied Health Sciences. Last, but not least, you will have the chance during the final part of the webinar to ask your own questions directly to the speakers or in break-out rooms.
