Medical Awareness for Female Cross Country Runners

******************************************************************************** a 10 year staple of every competitive runner from high school on up has team up with a medical student to study the Menstrual Irregularities in HS Cross Country Runners.
Menstrual Irregularities in High School Cross Country Runners My name is Jennifer Malcolm and I used to run Pennsylvania District 1 cross-country and track with Villa Maria Academy and went on to compete at Bucknell University. I am now a first year resident at the Medical College of Georgia and am pursuing a career in sports medicine. Dr. Christopher Mehallo of the Rothman Institute and I would like your help this fall with our study on menstrual irregularities in high school cross-country runners.
This is a VOLUNTEER study involving an ONLINE questionnaire. The study is strictly CONFIDENTIAL. The runners will NOT indicate their name or school on the questionnaire. The initial survey takes approximately 15 minutes to complete, and athletes will be asked to keep a log of their menstrual cycles during the 2007 cross-country season. The log is also online and requires less than 5 minutes of your time each month.

5th Year Player at RPI - Can't give it up!

Note: This link will expire in 7 days.
You can't find a more academically challenging college with this good a football program. A lot of credit has to be given to the players, yes of course, but to the coaches and admissions staff who find players that can compete on a Top 20 D-III football team and endure a very demanding science and engineering academic program.

RPI Sports web site: (note how it is under student life, not a stand alone sports web site, that tells you a little already). RPI is building what will be the top football stadium in the greater Albany NY area - surpassing SUNY Albany (D-1) in facilities by a big margin...for now.

He was a high school senior at the time, and he traveled with his parents to watch his brother Anthony play in the NCAA Division III football semifinals against St. John's (Minn.).
