Inauguration of the Sports
and Health Performance Lab

On April 12, the University of Balamand celebrated the inauguration of its cutting-edge Sports and Health Performance Laboratory, the first of its kind in the region.  

Attending the ribbon cutting ceremony was Minister of Youth and Sports H.E. Minister Faysal Karame who praised Balamand for its commitment to the development of physical education programs and sports facilities in a university environment.  

“Balamand has provided a model for Tripoli and Lebanon in various fields and has played a role as an intellectual forum for the principles of diversity and coexistence,” Karameh told the gathering.
