The Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre invites you to a Café scientifique to shed light on Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder on May 15 at 5:30 p.m. in the relaxed atmosphere of the Café du Musée des beaux–arts, at The Montreal Fine Arts Museum.

Focus on ADHD:Answers through Research

More than one million Canadians are affected by Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and it is one of the most commonly diagnosed behavioural disorders in children.

Researchers are working to provide answers about this developmental disorder which has become a societal concern affecting children and adults. What is the validity of the ADHD diagnosis? What role does genetics play? What treatment options are available? Are there risks related to medicating children with ADHD? Are medications overprescribed? What are the alternatives?

Come and join the discussion with three experts in the field. Learn about the most current research and recent developments in treatment.

This evening will be of special interest to parents of children with ADHD, adults diagnosed with ADHD, teachers, health care workers, psychosocial workers and the general public. This is your opportunity to ask questions and get the most up-to-date information.
