Dr. Jordi Monés with the Abu Dhabi Sports Council

Dr. Monés recently visited Abu Dhabi as a guest of the Abu Dhabi Sports Council to participate in a Sports Medicine meeting and to explain his experience with the Quit Smoking With Barça programme which it is hoped will serve an example for the world’s other clubs.

During his stay in the United Arab Emirates, Dr. Monés visited the facilities of Al Jazira football club where he exchanged with its medical team methods of cooperation between the clubs with regard to the anti-smoking campaign.

He was also able to present the Barcelona Macula Foundation: Research for Vision, an entity created to combat incurable macular and retinal degenerative diseases which lead to blindness, such as dry AMD, pigmentary retinosis and Stargardt’s Disease, with innovative projects which include regenerative and cellular therapy. Dr. Monés also explained the various lines of research the Foundation undertakes with other centres.
