Event: Relative Energy Deficiency In Sport (RED-S): How it can impact all sports and all athletes

Date: March 18, 2020

Time: 6-7pm

Overview:

WHAT IS RED-S?

In 2014, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) convened a group of experts to address and update the topic of the female athlete triad (Triad). A critical review of the evolution of the body of science that has been published since the origin of the Triad in 1972 found that the syndrome is much broader than originally thought. In response to this discovery, the IOC introduced a broader, more comprehensive term known as ‘Relative Energy Deficiency in Sport’ or RED-S.
