Offering the Program to Athletes

Join us for an interview with Stephanie Rovig, lead researcher on a new study exploring whether the Eat Breathe Thrive program prevents eating disorders in college athletes. Research suggests that athletes are nearly three times more likely to develop eating disorders than the general population — particularly in sports such as gymnastics, wrestling, figure skating, dance, and track. In this webinar, you’ll learn about how Eat Breathe Thrive can help athletes reduce injuries, meet their nutritional needs, and manage emotional pressure.

In this exclusive webinar, you will:

  • Hear from Steph about her experience leading a program for thirty (mostly male) Division I athletes at the University at Buffalo
  • Discover why eating disorders are so common in sports like wrestling and dance
  • Explore how to cater the program to help athletes reduce injury, eat well, and feel more confident in their bodies
