(20 ILCS 301/20-15)
Steroid education program.
The Department may develop and
implement a statewide steroid education program to alert the public, and
particularly Illinois physicians, other health care professionals, educators,
student athletes, health club personnel, persons engaged in the coaching and
supervision of high school and college athletics, and other groups determined
by the Department to be likely to come into contact with anabolic steroid
abusers to the dangers and adverse effects of abusing anabolic steroids, and to
train these individuals to recognize the symptoms and side effects of anabolic
steroid abuse. Such education and training may also include information
regarding the education and appropriate referral of persons identified as
probable or actual anabolic steroid abusers. The advice of the Illinois
Advisory Council established by Section 10-5 of this Act shall be sought in the
development of any program established under this Section.
