What is Project RED-S?

We are individuals whose lives have been impacted by RED-S. As athletes, parents, coaches and supporters, we identified a pressing need for a resource providing trusted, easy-to-read information and support. So, we teamed up with a team of RED-S specialists and supporters to achieve our simple aims: awareness, prevention, recovery.

Awareness.

For decades, RED-S has been misunderstood, underdiagnosed and untreated. Despite the systemic health impacts, researchers have questioned whether RED-S needs a dramatic event or Hollywood ambassador to bring it to the forefront, akin to the concussion crisis.As athletes and supporters whose lives have been impacted by the hidden dangers, we're rising to the challenge.

Prevention.

We're bringing exercise and clinical communities together to identify and implement best practices for prevention. By creating a community of athletes, healthcare specialists, coaches and supporters, we've made it easy to share information, ideas, and experiences so we can all play our part in improving individual and collective health in sport.

Recovery.

By providing a constantly-updated list of trusted RED-S specialists, we're consolidating an existing global network of resources that have previously been difficult to link together. We draw on our team of specialists to bridge the gap between athletes and access to the medical, nutritional, and psychological support required to recover. By reducing barriers to this key information, we help athletes pursue their true potential in sport.
