3 A message from the President of the Organizing Committee Dear Colleagues, Medicine, according to Aristotle (book Nicomahea Ethics, p. 3 4-36, Loeb Classical Library, Harvard 73) when well exercised leads to health.

In our time, health becomes more precious than ever due to pollution of our environment, climate change, poverty and unexpected conflicts between nations. Under these conditions we must strengthen and increase our devotion to medicine and try to offer as more health we can. The International Medical Olympicus Association invit es all colleagues serving medicine and/or other related special ties like biology, psychology etc to present in the

6th Olympiad research papers and exchange views for better health to our societies.

Perhaps the next years , starting from 2023 , will dramatically need our scientific knowledge in chapters like First Aid, Treatment of Injuries and other emergency conditions like Cardiovascular and Respiratory Failure. Not to mention the tragic results of nuclear accidents and/or of nuclear weapons, climate change or famine that our generation will certainly face in the future.

Main subjects of this Olympiad will refer to First Aid, Injuries, Obesity, Acute Cardiovascular and Respiratory Diseases , Radiation Sickness and miscellaneous prototype subje cts.

We shall make every effort necessary to publish a detailed summary of original papers who refer to the most practical and useful medical needs , as mentioned above, in a booklet and distribute it to all speakers and participants so that will carry back home the knowledge and the spirit of the 6th Olympiad. Few copies of the new book of Neo-Hippocratic Medicine , which includes highlights of medical knowledge and related Hippocratic Aphorisms , will also

be available.

As in every Olympiad, we sha ll have a joint meeting with our Advisors on Saturday evening and we shall try to have a n excursion on Sunday November 6th, in order to know better each other and exchange innovative views for the benefit of medicine and health .

Three first prizes and mor e will be awarded to the best presentations .

We ask you to join the 6th International Medical Olympiad and hope you will have an important scientific experience in Thessaloniki. The weather in early November is usually fine in Thessaloniki. Please let us know if any difficulties that we may cover related to your cooperation appear.
