Dr. Edward (Ned) Hallowell And His Staff Invite The Public To View The Documentary “ADD And Loving It,” Learn About, And Discuss ADHD


NEW YORK, NY — December 2, 2011 – On Wednesday, January 11, 6 p.m., the Hallowell Center of New York will host a free screening of “ADD & Loving It”, a humorous and informative film about ADHD, followed by discussion with world-renowned ADHD expert Dr. Ned Hallowell and the all-star staff of the Hallowell Center.


The terms “ADHD” or “ADD” generally bring to mind kids with excess energy. What do you suppose happens to all of those kids? A majority of them, around 2/3, in fact, grow into adults with ADHD. Today’s adults, however, grew up in a time when ADHD was poorly understood and rarely diagnosed or treated.  Many of their children are now experiencing the same difficulties they themselves faced as children.


In this one-hour documentary, Canadian comedy legend Patrick McKenna is after the truth. He talks to researchers, specialists, doctors as well as ordinary people who are dealing with the challenges of ADHD. Interwoven with these insights, Patrick shares his own story and his struggle with undiagnosed and untreated ADD, and his present success in taking on Adult ADHD.


Immediately following the film, Dr. Hallowell and his staff of specialists will host a lively discussion.  Reservations are required as seating will be limited.  For information or reservations call 212-799-7777 or email:
