The 2019 Female Athlete conference is a global event designed to present strategies to prevent and treat clinical issues and injuries specific to female athletes. As girls and young women become more empowered through sports, it is important to advance research on how sex and gender differences affect their performance and overall sports experience. With research advancements in mind, the Female Athlete Conference centers on the specific health issues that make female athletes unique. Experts in sports medicine, sports psychology, sports science, nutrition and sports culture will present strategies to prevent and treat clinical issues and injuries that can limit a female athlete’s performance.
Kathrine and CEO of 261 Fearless, Edith Zuschmann, will be on a panel about the Global Impact of Social Running on Women on Friday, June 7th from 8:15-9am.
