Featuring Russell A. Barkley, PhD
Tuesday, Jan. 15, 1:30 p.m.

Join us for a special presentation from Dr. Barkley on his research on ADHD and how treatment has the possibility of adding an average of nine to 13 years to your life or the life of your child. The webinar is free and registration is filling up quickly. This is an opportunity to learn about cutting-edge research on ADHD and your health directly from a leading researcher in ADHD.

“Our research shows that ADHD is much more than a neurodevelopmental disorder, it’s a significant public health issue,” says Dr. Barkley. “In evaluating the health consequences of ADHD over time, we found that ADHD adversely affects every aspect of quality of life and longevity. This is due to the inherent deficiencies in self-regulation associated with ADHD that lead to poor self-care and impulsive, high-risk behavior. The findings are sobering, but also encouraging, as ADHD is the most treatable mental health disorder in psychiatry.”

Russell A. Barkley, PhD, is an internationally recognized authority on ADHD in children and adults who has dedicated his career to widely disseminating science-based information about ADHD. Dr. Barkley is a Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at the Virginia Treatment Center for Children and Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center in Richmond, Virginia.
