About the Event
Relative Energy Deficiency in Sport (RED-S) is a syndrome caused by a mismatch of energy needs versus energy availability. RED-S can impact every system in the body, from the brain to heart to digestion, and each individual’s presentation may differ. The dietitian is generally the first to assess and intervene in the correction of low-energy availability, but every team member needs to know how RED-S may stand in the way of one's optimal health and recovery.
