Summit on APEDs and Youth

On April 22, 2015, the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) and its partners hosted a free, half-day Summit on Appearance- and Performance-Enhancing Drugs (APEDs) and Youth. Summit discussions focused on current Canadian research on APEDs and high school students, potential solutions to this troubling problem – including the expansion of the CCES Succeed Clean program - and how this sensitive topic should be addressed.

Presentations were also delivered from a wide range of experts, including:

  • Paul Melia, President and CEO of the CCES
  • Sloden Lackovic, Staff Sergeant, Waterloo Regional Police Services
  • Dr. Stephen Feder, Director, Adolescent Health Clinic, Children's Hospital East Ontario
  • Matthew Torigian, Ontario's Deputy Minister of Community Safety
  • Jennifer Keith, Program Manager for Succeed Clean
  • Spencer Thompson, Succeed Clean Peer-Mentor
