WOMEN'S HEALTH WEEK 2019

We will be celebrating National Women's Health Week, from 2 - 6 September 2019, by facilitating a series of workshops for our female athletes and their support staff/network at the VIS.

The informative and interactive workshops will be delivered by qualified experts with the aim to start discussions, break down barriers and provide education to our female athletes (and their support staff/network) on female athlete specific health considerations.

BACKGROUND

There is more and more research emerging around female athlete considerations. However, the main focus has been on providing research and resources to SSSM service providers.

While this is very necessary, as service providers we rely heavily on the athletes understanding their own bodies, identifying hurdles and coming forward for assistance. If they don’t have the knowledge or confidence to identify potential problems or opportunities, we delay the impact we can have on their situation.

The more open and informed we can be about female health topics, the greater chance we have at minimising risk and maximising opportunities.

DETAILS & EXPERTS

The workshops will educate our athletes and their support networks about some very important topics and empower those athletes to take action.
