Melissa Knight facilitated a webinar for the ADHD Coaches Organization (ACO), Feb. 27. The webinar covered Dr. Russell Barkley's latest research about the negative impact ADHD has on estimated life expectancy. According to his research, the correlation can be viewed a as serious public health problem; however, adequate interventions can change this. Knight invited participants to discuss ideas and strategies that may support such change.
