Wednesday, September 7, 2011


The Health Resources and Services Administration’s Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) presents the Full Multimedia Archive of the Live DataSpeak program titled "Bringing ADHD Epidemiology to States: What could state-based estimates mean for your state?" which took place on September 7, 2011.

This web conference examined epidemiological trends in childhood attention-deficit/hyperactivity over time, using data from the National Survey of Children’s Health. The presenters discussed the potential for using state-based estimates from this national, population-based survey to advance state health initiatives in the mental and behavioral health of children.
