NYSHSI has just joined Professionals Against Doping in Sports (PADS) as a supporter of clean sport. If you are a part of any sports-related organization where members are working with athletes, please consider visiting www.nodope.org and joint PADS too!
The American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) have formed PADS to develop a consortium of professional societies to establish common ethical principles targeted at physicians, allied medical professionals and coaches to provide additional impetus for anti-doping efforts. PADS will continue to reach out to professional societies to join as PADS Organizational Members in support of these ethical principles.
NYSHSI’s Dr. Michael Bergeron contributed to the first PADS e-newsletter in the spring of 2011 with an article titled: Achievement in Sports – Teaching Perspective to Young Athletes (and Adults).
