IIRM medical conferences

The International Institute for Race Medicine (IIRM) is the medical advisory body to AIMS and two of its Board members, Chris Troyanos and George Chiampas, are directly available to AIMS as advisors.

IIRM will hold a conference on 15 September at the Southern Sun Newlands Hotel in Cape Town, South Africa. The focus will be on excellence and prevention in medical care at mass-community based sports events. The conference is hosted by Mediclinic Southern Africa and the Sports, Exercise Medicine and Lifestyle Institute (SEMLI) at the University of Pretoria. See:

A further medical conference will be held in conjunction with the Marine Corps Marathon on 21–22 October at the W. Proctor Harvey Clinical Teaching Amphitheater of Georgetown University School of Medicine, Medical and Dental Building, 3900 Reservoir Road NW, Washington DC.

IIRM offers membership to AIMS member races at an introductory rate of USD100 for one year. For a limited time members can apply for a grant to cover the one-year membership. Up to 100 eligible events will be awarded such grants provided by the UK-based Matthew Good Foundation (MGF).
