This week’s session will be “Increasing Training Outcomes and Competitive Readiness: Nutrition Considerations,” presented by Erik Sesbreno (INS Quebec). Erik Sesbreno has been a full time sport dietitian in the Canadian high performance sports system for 5 years. He is currently the nutrition lead at l’Institut National du Sport du Québec in Montreal.
