|Do you think you might have ADD or ADHD? Have you or your children recently been diagnosed with ADD or ADHD? To learn more about the symptoms and latest treatment options for this common condition, join us at Abbeville Area Medical Center on Monday, September 26 at 7:00 pm for “Diagnosing and Treating ADD and ADHD in Children and Adults”. The program, which is part of the hospital’s Ladies Night Out series, will be presented by Dr. Steve Adams, a board-certified physician with Family Medicine Associates.
“ADD and ADHD are conditions characterized by poor attention and distractibility and/or hyperactive and impulsive behaviors,” said Dr. Adams. “It is one of the most common mental disorders that we see in children. Symptoms may continue into adolescence and adulthood. If left untreated, ADHD can lead to poor school or work performance, poor social relationships and a general feeling of low self-esteem. During the program, we will talk about the causes, symptoms and various treatment options for these conditions.”
Dr. Adams is a graduate of the University of Cincinnati Medical School in Ohio, and completed his internship and residency at Anderson Area Medical Center, in Anderson. He is board-certified in family practice with a special interest in children’s health and pediatric care.
The Ladies Night Out series is held on a monthly basis at Abbeville Area Medical Center in the Administrative Wing Education Room located at 420 Thomson Circle. The program is free however pre-registration is requested. Attendees will enjoy coffee and dessert and are eligible for a prize drawing at the end of the program.
