With the Cattolica University of Milan – High School of Psychology Department coordinated by Prof. Caterina Gozzoli, we are carrying out a research aimed to exploring the impact of Sport Senza Frontiere project, in terms of individual competencies acquired by beneficiaries as well as to exploring which processual aspects of this project foster the success of the educational and inclusive path.
Thanks to the cooperation with Tor Vergata University of Rome – Faculty of Medicine and Surgery, Bio-medicine and Prevention Department, a protocol has been processed in relation to sanitary screening of kids involved in Sport Senza Frontiere programs, under the name of FORGOOD project. Sport and related wellbeing have been analyzed in Tor Vergata University – by Prof. Ersilia Buonomo, by the mean of the outcome of medical visits made to kids involved in sport activities, and this allowed us to describe, evaluate and monitor in the time social-demographic characteristics of kids in Naples, Rome, Milan and Buenos Aires, their health conditions, their suitability to sport activities and their nutrition habits and foods preferences. The first data of this project (still in the process of being evaluated) have been presented in a convention held in Rome: Sport as a contrast to infantile poverty.
Those studies have been published by the international magazine International Journal of Food Sciences and Nutrition.
