Würzburg, Vienna, Berlin, Milan, Glasgow, and now # 6 in Vancouver.
The 6th World Congress on ADHD will take place for the first time outside of Europe, they chose Canada, here in my home city of Vancouver.
It will be on April 20–23 2017 at the Vancouver Convention Centre.
It is a massive conference with presenters from all over the world. There will be very many sessions on an extremely wide variety of topics on ADHD in adults, children, and teens.
For example just scrolling through one of the four days, Friday, on my 20” monitor took scrolling down 29, count them, 29 screens scrolls.
I hope some speakers will address the problem of our BC government massively neglecting ADHD in adults and children when they conveniently during our provincial election.
The BC Liberals shut down the only adult ADHD clinic in 2007 after a year-long wait list.
BCNDP MLA’s have consistently refused to call for it to be reopened. Unlike them, the past leader and other candidates of the BC Conservative Party called for it to be reopened. The past leader of the BC Greens and others called on it to be opened, including their current leader Andrew Weaver.
In 2016 a private donor funded a small Adult ADHD clinic at Lion’s Gate with only 1 part time staff member vs the 5 full time they had.
I’ve called for establishing Public adult and children’s ADHD clinics in each of the 7 health regions of BC, what do you think?
Justin Trudeau promised me Sept 10th 2015 he’d screen prisoners in Federal jails for ADHD. Now Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan promised to.
In the previous election, many other Liberals promised too. Zero action taken. Maybe some speaker might mention this?
