    Hello runners!

    My name is Marina Tosi and I am conducting a research study on the prevalence and knowledge levels of eating disorders and a related medical condition called the Female Athlete Triad. The ultimate goal of this project is to ensure the safety of female athletes as well as spread awareness for eating disorders and the Female Athlete Triad. The survey focuses on female runners, dancers and figure skaters as well as their coaches and parents. As an athlete, coach, athletic director or trainer of female athletes, it would be extremely valuable to my research if you could take two minutes to fill out my online survey and send it to other female athletes, parents, and coaches (of both genders).

    The survey can be accessed at: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfFtd9nNKsHZIXjvmOFOs8Vce8DyytjmDDGkh2efaTFLCyKSw/viewform

    Please feel free to contact me with any questions by means of Facebook or my email ([email protected]). Thank you so much for you help and participation!

    More information:
    This survey is part of my four-year science research project that I am conducting by means of my high school’s original science research class. This survey and related methods of my research have been approved by Montefiore Hospital and Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx, NY. All parts of this research have no risk to any of the participants and no identifying information will be collected at any stage during the survey. The results will be condensed into a research paper and presented at science fairs across NY.
