Along with academic, entertainment and sports activities, the University Sports Week will be held from Monday, February 28.
On that day, the conference ‘University, sport and health’ will take place, which aims to contribute, from the sciences of physical activity and sport, to the integral formation of students in professional growth.
“These two fields can generate positive impacts on health, physical, psychological and socioemotional well-being. To talk about university, health and sport is to be at the forefront in what is related to health promotion and prevention, where university students have great power in the medium and long term”, informed Alejandra María Franco Jiménez, professor of the Department of Physical Education and Sports.
The event will be held at the Ágora auditorium of the Faculty of Human Sciences starting at 3:00 p. m. It will have as guest speakers the experts Santiago Ramos Bermúdez and Camilo Andrés Villamizar Sierra.
