Why take this course?

Nutrition for women's performance is unique and it's fair to say, that despite a common narrative (and a lack of research on women!)... the female athletes are not just small men!
In this course, athlete, researcher, registered nutritionist, and female health and performance expert Dr Mikki Williden delves into the science behind nutrition for female performance to help women achieve their best sporting (and life) performances.
