Lori Merlo, LAT, ATC
Lori earned her Bachelor’s of Science in Athletic Training at Westfield State University and is currently a graduate student in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program at UMass Lowell. At Westfield State, she ran on the cross-country and track teams, and completed her Commonwealth Honors Scholar research project titled, RED-S: The Relationship Between Disordered Eating in Male and Female Athletes. At UMass Lowell, Lori works as an athletic trainer for club sports athletes.
This presentation introduces the condition termed Relative Energy Deficiency in Sport (RED-S), and explains its pathophysiology. It will discuss subclinical disordered eating behaviors among athletes, and how those behaviors lead to the development of RED-S. Participants will learn how to prevent, identify, and treat athletes with RED-S.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
Explain why athletes are at a high risk for developing disordered eating behaviors.
Explain the pathophysiology of the association between disordered eating and injury.
Recognize an athlete who may be exhibiting disordered eating behaviors
Generate a plan for identifying and addressing disordered eating behaviors, including appropriate referral sources, in order to prevent athletic injuries.
