Together, we’ll ELEVATE the future of sports medicine and exercise science.
ACSM is pleased to announce the release of the annual Team Physician Consensus Conference statement, which is a blend of research evidence and expert consensus providing guidance and teaching tools for physicians working in the sports medicine field, regardless of geographical location or level of team or athlete.
The 2017 TPCC consensus statement focuses on Issues in the Female Athlete and covers a variety of topics related to the health of the female athlete. We invite you to read the statement in either MSSE or CSMR.
Exercise and Sports Science Australia, American College of Sports Medicine, British Association of Sport and Exercise Science, and Sport and Exercise Science New Zealand collaborated to develop a brief statement titled The Role of Sport, Exercise, and Physical Activity in Closing the Life Expectancy Gap for People with Mental Illness. The statement discusses the need for holistic treatment for those with mental illness including physical health care, which is often lacking when mental illness is the focus of treatment. We invite you to read the paper, which published in the Translational Journal of the America College of Sports Medicine, and share with your colleagues.
MYTH: It's "normal" for female athletes to lose their period, or stop menstruating.
REALITY: Amenorrhea due to working out is unhealthy.
