This week: ADHD update; child exposure to marijuana products

An Upstate scientist is lead author of the World Federation of ADHD International Consensus Statement issued early in 2021. This is a paper that explains aspects of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder that are agreed upon by experts all over the world.

Stephen Faraone is a distinguished professor and vice-chair of research for psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Upstate, where he is also a professor of neuroscience and physiology. In this episode he provides an update on ADHD, a syndrome that was first described in medical literature in 1775.

Also on the show, Christine Stork, the clinical director of the Upstate New York Poison Center, discusses the troubling increase in the number of children who are exposed to marijuana products such as edibles. And urologic oncologist Hanan Goldberg goes over the warning signs of prostate cancer.

Listen this Sunday, June 27 at 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. for more.
