Rick Collins to Address Steroids and the Law at two Upcoming Seminars
Upcoming NYIT and Hofstra Speaking Engagements To Focus on Timely Issues Surrounding Performance Enhancing Drugs
Rick Collins has been invited to speak at two upcoming events on Long Island to address the legal issues surrounding performance enhancing drugs and discuss his experiences as a top steroid lawyer. As one of the country’s leading authorities on PEDs and the law, Rick will provide audiences at each event with important insight and information about the topic – as well as address some of today’s most timely and high profile legal cases involving steroids in professional sports.
Rick’s upcoming Long Island presentations on the topic of steroids and the law are:
November 7th, 2013 — the New York Institute of Technology: “Criminal Justice on Steroids.” Rick will be presenting an interactive session for students in the School of Management – a follow-up to his successful and popular lecture last year, which resulted in him being asked back by Professor Adele Deerson to speak to students once again. This year his presentation – “Criminal Justice on Steroids” – will discuss his career as a criminal defense attorney and his work in the legal field representing cases involving performance enhancing drugs. Last year’s presentation was tremendously well received, and students are eager for Rick’s return visit – and the opportunity to learn more about this topic and Rick’s expertise both as a criminal defense attorney and top legal authority in steroid law.
December 10th, 2013 – Hofstra University: “Your Kids on Steroids.” Rick has been asked to once again serve as a speaker for an important upcoming conference being orchestrated by the Long Island Youth Safety Coalition – the organization formed by Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice in response to the dangers facing teenagers today, and comprised of local school districts, youth groups, substance abuse treatment organizations and law enforcement agencies dedicated to keeping Long Island’s youth safe from destructive decision-making. As part of this important conference – titled “Smart Decisions: Helping Youth Survive in Today’s World” — Rick has been asked to once again speak about teenagers and steroids, and will be addressing an audience comprised of school officials, representatives from youth agencies, concerned parents and all who engage with youth. His presentation will cover everything from an overview of anabolic steroids and dietary supplements to the prevalence, motivation, medical risks – and legal consequences – of teens involved with steroids or other performance enhancing drugs.
The Smart Decisions Conference, which will take place on December 10th from 8:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m., is open to the public and geared for anyone who works with teens today, as well as parents interested in attending this important forum. Registration information for the conference can be found at www.liyouthsafetycoalition.org. In addition to Rick’s presentation about teens and performance enhancing drugs, the conference will feature a number of key presenters, workshops and resources to address important strategies to help today’s youth make the right decisions when it comes to critical issues, including cyber-bullying and Internet safety, distracted diving, and underage alcohol / prescription drug abuse, among other topics. The conference will feature keynote speaker Judith Kaye, who served as Chief Judge of the New York Court of Appeals for 15 years, who will speak on her campaign for school reform. In addition, the conference will feature a special Youth Panel comprised of youth leaders from the region to address a number of key issues facing teens, including substance abuse and cyber-bullying.
As one of the country’s most established and well known steroid lawyers, Rick continues to be sought after to offer insight into this important topic for a variety of audiences.
