July 12, 2022
From Collagen to Iron to Protein Supplements, Microlearning teaches you how to read labels and choose the right supplements for your body
/SPORTSWIRE WOMEN/ – Forward thinking exercise physiologist Dr. Stacy Sims introduces a collection of short, comprehensive courses around nutrition, supplement and women’s health topics designed to give women athletes fact-based science and research on the most pressing and trending topics. Known for her ‘Women are Not Small Men’ lectures and TEDx talk, Dr. Sims designed Microlearning courses to reduce the complexity of getting accurate health information and delivering the latest research in a comprehensive and efficient format. In only a few hours, Microlearning courses deliver a deep dive into science and teach individuals how to apply it to his or her lifestyle.
“As usual, Dr. Sims breaks down previously held assumptions and ensures that we understand the science so that we, and our clients, are no longer swindled by marketing,” said Samantha Rothberg, American athlete and coach.
“So many health advocates these days are on an information overload campaign,” said Sims. “They waste your time and (a lot of) money pushing products that usually don’t work. I don’t push products, I push knowledge.”
The first Microlearning series rolled out with 7 Collections jam-packed with rich content users can do at their own pace. Microlearning overview videos can be found here and an outline of the courses below:

“The Dr. Stacy Sims Microlearning Units are absolutely fantastic and have vastly improved my knowledge.
