Member Spotlight

The APSARD membership consists of highly accomplished clinicians, researchers, academics, and scientists who are working hard every day to improve care for the millions of people with ADHD and related disorders world-wide. Occasionally, that work is recognized. When that happens, we are very happy to share the good news here, in the Member Spotlight. If you have a news of a professional accomplishment that you want to share here, please send it to
