SPO-002: Use of Anabolic Steroids and Performance Enhancing Drugs for Athletic Enhancement

 
Use of Anabolic Steroids and Performance Enhancing Drugs for Athletic Enhancement: The Wisconsin Medical Society (Society) believes that it is unethical for anyone to prescribe, supply, administer, use or condone the use of anabolic steroids and performance enhancing drugs for purposes of enhanced muscle development and athletic performance. Further, the Society supports efforts to educate physicians, sports governing bodies, coaches, parents and athletes on the federal guidelines and laws for prescribing and dangers of abuse of anabolic steroids and performance enhancing drugs.
