2017, A Great Year For The Team

2017 was a great for the team in terms of publications. We have been involved in 59 peer reviewed publications that saw the day of light last year; 34 on the topic 'healthy sports', and 25 on the topic of 'healthy lifestyle'. We have started 2018 with flying inspiration, so we hope to reach out with great work in the coming months again. For those interested we have listed last year's publications below.
