Anti-doping education for schoolchildren
The use of doping agents and steroids, specifically Androgenic Anabolic Steroids, is considered a growing public health problem for today’s young people. Doping agents are easy to obtain as pure steroids, but can also be found in poorly controlled dietary supplements. Several of these products have been found to contain harmful and unauthorized chemical preparations. In this project, Professor Arne Ljungqvist’s Anti-Doping Foundation will gather facts on doping based on their previous experiences and studies. An education program for young people aged 13-20 will be developed, which can be used in schools, gyms, and sports associations. In addition a program for teachers, leaders, and parents will also be developed.
