NYU Langone Health conference on Adult ADHD will feature international experts Dr. Len Adler, Dr. Joseph Beiderman, Dr. Francisco X. Castellanos and others. I am honored to be invited as faculty to present the latest science on ADHD in older adults (over the age of 50). My presentation will cover topics of identification and diagnosis of ADHD in older adults complaining of cognitive difficulties, other medical diagnoses to consider, the medical workup to rule out other medical causes, the role of medical polypharmacy on cognition, effective ADHD medications and treatments, and how the quality of life is negatively effected when left untreated.
This conference is a high level medical/psychiatric conference geared to clinicians interested in updating and broadening clinical skills to diagnosis and effectively treat ADHD in older adults.
I have spoken on this topic at other medical conferences and the media. Please listen to my interview on “Morning Edition” NPR for an overview on the topic.
I look forward to sharing the program with my esteemed colleagues.
