Drug Testing for horses and athletes
All athletes participating in the Olympic games are subject to drug testing, including the horses in the equestrian events.
Tulsa2024 supports WADA - the World Anti Doping Association, which promotes, coordinates and monitors the fight against doping in sport in all its forms.
During the Atlanta Olympics, Morehouse School of Medicine established a research and training center in drug testing with the assistance of SmithKline Beecham Clinical Laboratories (SBCL). Students from Morehouse's Sports Medicine Center were deployed to the clinical laboratory to assist the IOC doping control research.

For the Tulsa Games, to spotlight OSU-CHS rural telehealth and telemedicine contributions, Tulsa's Oklahoma State University Center for Health Sciences could be a possible location for the drug testing laboratory due to its location in downtown Tulsa, and deploy Oklahoma State University medical students to assist advanced IOC doping control research.
