The purpose of this directed project was to develop an educational seminar for incoming college female athletes, college coaches, athletic directors, trainers, weight coaches and parents on the female athlete triad syndrome. The goals of this program were to (a) create an educational seminar to increase knowledge about the triad and how to prevent female athletes from developing it, and (b) to provide information on how to address the female athlete triad once developed. The educational seminar consists of two segments: the first being open to all athletes, family members and athletic personnel of the school with the goal of increasing education of the triad as well as raising awareness, and the second segment held amongst each team individually without the presence of family members or athletic personnel for a more private setting. An expert-review panel assessed the education seminar materials, evaluated the content and layout and provided feedback. Formative evaluation review forms for the educational seminar materials were created to assess the efficacy and value of the program.
