Calling All College Students… Participants Needed for 2-Day Summit on Preventing ADHD Medication Misuse

You may be eligible to participate in a two-day summit, including an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, DC, to discuss ADHD prescription drug misuse, abuse, and diversion on college campuses.

Can you answer yes to the following:

  •     I’m a college student
  •     I’ve been diagnosed with ADHD
  •     I take ADHD meds

Summit participants will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, DC, in July.

CHADD and the Coalition to Prevent ADHD Medication Misuse (CPAMM) are teaming up to get to the root of the misuse of ADHD medications on college campuses across the US and get your feedback on how we can prevent it.

This is an opportunity to have your voice heard and take action on this serious issue. Participants will hear presentations that inform and enlighten. You’ll also be able to share your own experiences and make recommendations on how to prevent the misuse of prescribed ADHD meds.

Take action today – submit the application by May 20 to reserve your seat – it’s free!

If selected to participate in the Summit, you will be required to:
1.    Travel to Washington, DC (FREE TRAVEL)
2.    Participate in panel discussions sharing your experiences as a student on ADHD medications
3.    Share your position on the issue of sharing your medications
4.    Help develop recommendations for a public health campaign for college students that addresses the misuse, abuse, and diversion of ADHD prescription medications.
