“The promotion of correct lifestyles – declares the rector Antonella Polimeni – is a necessary action, a duty to which the institutions, each with its own competences, are called to in favor of each individual and of the community as a whole. The skills that doctors and psychologists in the Health Sciences area make available free of charge confirm the line that Sapienza is pursuing in the direction of offering its community and local area high-quality services that can create social value. The ‘Padel e Salute’ initiative, now in its fourth edition, is growing and consolidating, made stronger by an ever wider involvement of the various souls of Sapienza: not just a weekend of sport and health, but a real appointment for psychophysical well-being “.
“This event – explains the director general of the Policlinico Umberto I Fabrizio d’Alba – has become the appointment par excellence with prevention. A commitment that sees our hospital increasingly involved and participates thanks above all to the active collaboration of our doctors. They are in fact – doctors, trainees, health workers – the active engine of this prevention and awareness campaign, which sees us lined up together with Sapienza in an event that underlines even more the importance and value of these two structures full of professionalism and expertise at the disposal of public health”.
Events such as ‘Padel e Salute’ “are important opportunities – underlines the general manager of the Sant’Andrea Daniela Donetti hospital-university company – to promote a culture of health, which passes through sport, adherence to prevention campaigns, attention to one’s psychophysical well-being and the adoption of a healthy lifestyle. Every day in our university polyclinics we see science making giant strides in the treatment of diseases, but each of us remains the best player in the field for our own health ”.
