Congress Highlights 2015


Dear friends of the World Federation of ADHD,

It was a pleasure to meet so many of you in Glasgow!

We are very happy with the final results. A very well-attended meeting with more than 1600 delegates from 64 countries. We, at the board, received very positive feedbacks on the program, but if there is any critics, please do not hesitate to contact us!

Thank you so much for joining the conference!

For those that were not able to join us, do not miss the opportunity in Vancouver 2017.

See you all there!
Luis Augusto Rohde
