Who Are We?

The Female Athlete Triad Coalition, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, represents key medical, nursing, athletic, and sports medicine groups, as well as concerned individuals who come together to promote optimal health and well-being for female athletes and active girls and women.

The Coalition developed from the international, collaborative desire to support cultures that promote healthy athletic environments, establish public policy, effect change in national and international governing bodies, eliminate inappropriate dietary treatment practices of female athletes, provide education about the Triad, and determine the scope of the problem through research.
