Distinguished Pub Lecture 19 Nov 13 - Doping & Nutrition

UTech to Host Public Lecture on the Science of Doping and Nutrition in Sports

The University of Technology, Jamaica (UTech) as part of its mandate to engage public debate and foster public awareness and education of important national issues, will host a public lecture entitled “The Science Behind Doping and Nutrition in Sports: Let the Nation Hear!” on Tuesday, November 19, 2013 / 5: 30 pm / Room No. 1 at the Jamaica Conference Centre in Kingston.

The lecture will be delivered by Biomedical Scientist and world renowned expert on Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism, Prof. the Hon. Errol Morrison OJ, who is also President, UTech and Prof. Fitzroy Henry, PhD, Professor of Public Health Nutrition in UTech’s College of Health Sciences.

The lecture will explain in simple terms, the science behind how the muscles work to produce energy for  athletic high performance; how stimulants work in enhancing this overall performance and the need for such stimulants vis-a-vis nutrition for building muscles.  The Presenters will argue that with appropriate nutrition and fitness programmes, the body can perform at its optimum without the need for external influencers like doping steroids, stimulants and masking agents.

Against the background of recent adverse analytical findings for some local athletes, the public lecture will also seek to provide information about the range of supplements that are available and those which are dangerous.
