A carnegieXchange event in partnership with #TRAINBRAVE

About this Event

In support of the #TRAINBRAVE event that we are hosting at Leeds Beckett University’s Headingley Campus on Sunday 10th November, this extended carnegieXchange event will allow delegates to explore, discuss and learn about Relative Energy Deficiency in Sport, otherwise known as RED-s. The morning session will highlight the excellent work that a range of athletes, coaches and practitioners are doing to raise awareness of RED-s, with opportunities to engage in a range of discussions and educational activities designed to support continued professional development. The afternoon session represents the headline event, led by the #TRAINBRAVE campaign to raise awareness and provide educational resources related to RED-s and eating disorders in sport (for more details of the campaign, go to https://trainbrave.org/).

Both morning and afternoon sessions are free of charge and open to anyone to attend. However, please note that the target audience for the morning session are those who have some experience of coaching, professional practice/consultancy, or academic study in related areas.
