Dato’ Sri Jessy Lai, a strong proponent for the prevention of non-communicable diseases (NCD) and chair of the World Conference on Exercise Medicine (WCEM), attended the 1st International Seminar on Exercise Medicine, on 28-29 Feburary 2020 in Lahore, Pakistan.

In her opening ceremony speech, Lai shared her learning 4 years ago while researching the topic of NCDs with Dr Lee Chee Peng.

Dato Sri Jessy Lai and Dr. Lee spent a considerable amount of time learning about NCDs. After thorough research and discussion with professional doctors, they’re convinced that exercise can effectively prevent the occurrence of non-communicable diseases. Thus WCEM was born.

They then ran the WCEM for three years, each gathering medical experts from more than 30 countries to discuss of the prevention of NCDs, hoping to help achieve WHO’s goals laid out in the “2013-2020 Global Movement for Prevention and Control of NCDs”.

致力于推动全球非传染性疾病(non-communicable disease, NCD)预防工作兼全球性质的国际运动医疗研讨会(WCEM)主席拿督斯里赖彩云于2020年2月28(星期五)以及29日(星期六)在巴基斯坦,拉合尔(Pakistan,Lahore)主办第一届运国际动医疗论坛(1st International Seminar on Exercise Medicine)。

拿督斯里赖彩云在论坛开幕礼致辞时说道,4年前,她与MS运动医疗执行长李志平博士关注了“非传染性疾病”的相关课题,惊讶的发现了许多惊人的数据。

为了更进一步掌握这方面的知识,他们成立了团队,投注了相当多的时间去研究这个疾病,通过大量的阅读以及研究资料并与专业的医生多次的讨论后,认为运动能有效预防非传染性疾病的发生,WCEM因此诞生。

接下来,她与MS运动医疗诊所执行长李志平博士共同推动了3届全球性质且备受世界卫生组织(WHO)以及运动医疗界瞩目的WCEM,每一次研讨会都邀请了全球超过30个国家的运动医疗与医疗精英参与WCEM以制订对非传染性疾病的解决方案,以协助WHO顺利完成《2013-2020年预防和控制非传染性疾病全球行动计划》减低全球非传染性疾病的上升。
