Welcome to June's feature topic page and Q&A Discussion Forum! Find everything we have lined up for this month below including our feature module, the chance to talk to our exercise prescription expert and test your knowledge in our expert's case study.
This module gives a great overview of the specific issues faced by the para-athlete. It aids understanding of the system of classification and the process that the para-athlete must undertake to be classified in their sport. It then discusses the issues that may arise travelling with the para-athlete, and the specific illnesses and injuries that may affect para-athletes.
Each month the SEM Academy team pick a topical subject and source our very best global experts, to provide you with current information and research.
During the month we invite you to use the discussion forum below to enter your questions and interact with your SEM peers.
The content expert will respond right here, on this page, and interact with you through out the month. Discussion only lasts for one month, so start asking!
