Get your calendars ready! The PCC has compiled a list of anti-doping conferences being held in 2018.
Be sure to check back regularly for updates to the list as many events are expected to occur later in the year. As well, many anti-doping events are bi-annual so we’ve also compiled the events we expect to see back in 2019.
