Translational Journal of the American College of Sports Medicine and SHI Women, Sport, and Physical Activity partner to publish special issue
Though there are many unanswered questions related to gender differences as they apply to sports and exercise, research focused on the various gender specific aspects of women in sport, physical activity, and clinical application trails evidence-based research on men.
