This presentation describes how people who use image and performance enhancing drugs reduce the harms of their drug use. It illustrates how the shift towards scientifically informed drug practice has impacted on the harm reduction practices of enhanced bodybuilders. Furthermore it highlights the opportunities that this shift presents for collaboration between enhanced bodybuilders and the professionals who seek to care for and support them. 

Dr Mair Underwood is an anthropologist who has been conducting participant observation in online communities of enhanced bodybuilders for the last 5 years. She is passionate about reducing the harms of these drugs through culturally appropriate interventions, and through increasing understanding of the harm reduction practices already in use in enhancement communities.
