Science Café presents Dr. Anne Loucks, Professor of Biological Sciences, on “Fitness, Fatness, Fractures, Fertility and Food” on Wed., Nov. 4, at 5 p.m. in the Baker Center Front Room.

“We typically look at an athlete as healthy, but in the way sport is practiced there are some unhealthy aspects that are leading to reproductive disturbances and stress fractures and potentially more serious fractures in women,” Loucks said.

Loucks stresses that “exercise is very beneficial for women, but there are ways women are exercising and eating that can lead to unhealthy outcomes.”

Watch on A&S TV.

The event will be live-streamed on Oct. 28 and archived, and the online audience is invited to submit questions.
