Event Details

Women’s health is not just about periods and reproduction. Female hormones affect every aspect of health including insulin, muscles, and metabolism. In this one-day workshop, Kira and Lara will combine their expertise in sports nutrition and women’s health to bring you a unique look at the specific requirements and recommendations for women in sport and fitness. They’ll present new research as well as insights from their more than 40 years of combined clinical experience.

Aims and Learning Outcomes: Participants will learn how female reproductive hormones influence general health, metabolism and sports performance. They will be presented with the latest research about exercise-induced amenorrhea as well as strategies to help patients to eat and train according to the phase of their menstrual cycle.
