Vancouver ADHD conference. ADHD: Across the Lifespan

The first annual CADDRA (Canadian Attention Deficit Disorder Research Alliance) ADHD conference, ADHD: Across the Lifespan will be held in Vancouver BC June 19 – 20, 2005.

Looks like there’s great content and great prices too.

I’d give a link to CADDRA but am still waiting for them to create a website, hopefully they’ll have one up before the conference starts.

They’re having it just before the Canadian Paediatric Society’s 2005 Annual Conference in Vancouver which starts June 21st.

Their target audience is Pediatricians, Psychiatrists, Family Physicians, Psychologists, & Educators.

While the conference is geared towards medical professionals, it is also open to the public at very good rates (see website for details). I registered yesterday.

So if you or your doctor, psychologist or psychiatrist want to learn more about ADD and might like to spend some time in one of the top 3 most liveable cities in the world, register today.

The have topics on children, teens and adults with ADHD.

Here are some of the topics relating to adhd adults.
