Hattiesburg Clinic Connections will host the 14th Annual Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Related Concerns Conference Oct. 19-20, at the Temple Baptist Church Student Center, 5220 Old Highway 11 in Hattiesburg, Miss. The event will take place on Thursday from 8 a.m. to 3:45 p.m., and on Friday from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
The conference will include sessions on a variety of topics related to ADHD and coexisting disorders and will feature relevant keynote sessions.
“We are expecting another great conference with knowledgeable experts in the field of behavioral health,” said Ronald Kent, MD, director at Connections. “For us, this event is one of the highlights of our year, as it gives us an opportunity to get together with like-minded professionals who are eager to learn and share new information.”
Over the years, the ADHD Conference has served as an educational resource for school administrators, counselors, psychologists, social workers, speech language pathologists, health care providers, regular educators and special educators. Continuing Education Units (CEUs) will be available. Parents and caregivers who are impacted by ADHD or similar disorders are also encouraged to attend.
“We are excited to be going into our 14th year with this event,” said Susan Yarrow, Hattiesburg Clinic public relations manager and event organizer. “From year to year, we see familiar faces join us from past conferences, and we often hear new attendees say they will return because the things they learn are so helpful in their professions or personal lives. That’s a reminder to us that this event does a lot of good.”
