The workshop on Exercise and AF brought together 37 AF researchers at Professorboligen, University of Oslo, April 12, in beautiful spring weather.
Keynote speaker, André la Gerche, came all the way from Melbourne, Australia, and gave an excellent talk on the topic: Physical activity, exercise and atrial fibrillation – Current evidence and future opportunities. Bjarne Martens Nes told us the exciting story about the development of “PAI – Physical Activity Index” developed by Ulrik Wisløff’s group, CERG, at NTNU in Trondheim. In addition, Marit Aarønæs, Bente Morseth, Trygve Berge and Erik Ekker Solberg gave talks on AF and exercise-related topics.
We are thrilled to see that our network members have such great interest in the relationship between AF and exercise. As you know, there is ongoing research activity within this field in our network, and members with an particular interest also had the time to meet during the workshop to plan collaborations within afib.no. We look forward to hearing more about the collaboration in the future!
