DELIVER KEYNOTE ADDRESS AT ADULT ADHD AWARENESS AND SCREENING FAIR
The National Attention Deficit Disorder Association (ADDA) and Eli Lilly and Company
offer free ADHD education and screening to adults

WHAT: Cammi Granato, Olympic Gold and Silver Medalist for USA Women’s Ice Hockey, will be on hand along with four of the country’s top Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) experts at this FREE Awareness Fair offering ADHD screening and education for adults in the St. Louis area.

At this event, experts will discuss the disorder and its effects on relationships, work and other issues adults with ADHD may face. Approximately eight million adults in the U.S. suffer from ADHD, but the vast majority goes unrecognized and untreated. Untreated ADHD can have a significant impact on an adult’s life leading to increased divorce rates, poor job performance and an increased incidence of substance abuse and motor vehicle accidents. With proper diagnosis and treatment, ADHD symptoms can be decreased and quality of life improved.

Workshop topics and speakers include:
 ADHD and the Family – Evelyn Polk Green, Vice President, ADDA
 ADHD and Your Career – Dr. Kathleen Nadeau, Director, Chesapeake Center for Attention and Learning, Silver Spring, Md.
