The topic for this presentation is therapeutic use exemptions or TUEs. A TUE is required by an athlete who wants to continue to take medication when that medication is a banned substance in that sport. If an athlete continues to train and compete without a therapeutic use exemption in those circumstances they risk a doping violation and a lengthy ban from their sport.
