Dietary Supplements: Strength, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats - ADLQ 8th Annual Symposium

Dietary Supplements: Strength, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats

ADLQ 8th Annual Symposium will be held on the 1st and 2nd of May 2018 in the Torch Ballroom in Qatar under the title 'Dietary Supplements: Strength, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats'

Drugs in sport is equally topical amongst both human and animals. Dietary supplements have become a potential source for many dopants. There is a widespread use of these supplements in elite and recreational athletes, as well as in the general population, not just for enhancing sport performance, but also for improving body image. Therefore, regulation of manufacture, use, and consequences of their abuse, require debate. This is especially so when ignorance is not a legitimate plea against a positive drug test.

The premise of this symposium is the use of dietary supplements by athletes, both human and animals, and aims to highlight the associated prizes and pitfalls.

Experts from both the human and animal nutrition and anti-doping arenas, including sports and general physicians, veterinarians and scientists will converge to contribute to this discourse.

The Symposium is also offering a chance for Poster’s Presentation for interested participants of relevant theme of the Symposium, details are on the registration link. http://events.adlqatar.qa/conference/adlqsymposium
