The American Medical Society for Sports Medicine (AMSSM) is the world’s largest primary care sports medicine organisation and one of BJSM’s 23 member societies. It provides authoritative education for the public as well as for athletes and health professionals.

BJSM is proud to host AMSSM experts discussing the potentially life-threatening condition that is widely known as ‘The Female Athlete Triad’. Dr Elizabeth Joy (Salt Lake City) and Dr Aurelia Nattiv (UCLA, Los Angeles) are both researchers and clinicians in this field so they provide a great overview as well as practical tips for athletes, parents and health professionals in this 20-minute podcast. (AMSSM’s guest host is Dr Britt Marcussen, U of Iowa).

They are two of the lead authors on the 2014 International Consensus Statement on this topic: Br J Sports Med. 2014 Feb;48(4):289. doi: 10.1136/bjsports-2013-093218. http://bjsm.bmj.com/content/48/4/289.long
