A Visit with Alan Schwarz, author of ADHD Nation: Children, Doctors, Big Pharma and the Making of an American Epidemic
91 Coopers Farm rd.
More than one in seven American children are being diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), making it one of the most debated — and mishandled — conditions in medicine. Mr. Schwarz, the Pulitzer Prize-nominated former New York Times reporter best known for his investigative series about concussions among football players, will talk about his groundbreaking book, ADHD Nation, which takes readers behind the scenes to expose the roots and rise of this cultural and medical phenomenon, and highlights the systemic overdiagnosis of ADHD and the chilling effects that medications have on patients, especially children.
