Introduction
I'm a professor and researcher at the Institute of Physical Education and Sport, Federal University of Alagoas. Currently, I work in the following subjects: 1) Effect of physical activity and exercise in the health-disease process, in primary and secondary prevention; 2) Cardiovascular and metabolic diseases in children and adolescents as a consequence of primary diseases (HIV-infection, obesity, congenital heart disease).
