On March 20, 2018, HQMC's Semper Fit Branch hosted a Dietary Supplements Training aboard MCB Quantico. All branches of service attended the training which included experts in the field from the University of Arkansas, the National Institute of Health, the Department of Justice, the Drug Enforcement Administration, and other federal agencies. Topics included an overview of dietary supplement use in the U.S. military, what MOSs can't use any form of dietary supplements, and the use of high-risk supplements which can cause positive urinalysis results, even if they are not otherwise illegal. Participants walked away with tons of new information to share in the operating forces.
