Earning a Degree with ADHD: A unique event about succeeding at university and life, with comedian Rick GreenExport this event to calendar

Tuesday, October 17, 2017 — 4:30 PM EDT

Rick GreenIn this unique event, discover powerful tools that help with memory, time management, clutter, restlessness, distractions, studying, energy levels, and sleep.

As part of Invisible Disabilities Week, Renison University College and the University of Waterloo's Student Success Office presents this unique event with comedian and Waterloo/Renison alumnus, Rick Green (B.Sc. '75).

Through humour and scientific information, Rick Green will share tips, tricks, and knowledge for post-secondary success and life as an adult with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).<--break->

In his late 40s, Rick was diagnosed with ADHD. This made a lot of sense as he began to learn what the symptoms of ADHD are. He could see the signs of ADHD as he looked back over his life and time at university. Though he graduated with a degree from Waterloo, it was a rough road at times. Rick wishes he'd received this diagnosis sooner so that he could have treated and mastered his ADHD, making it work for him rather than against him.

Join Rick as he shares both his journey and cutting-edge, scientific research from medical experts on the subject of ADHD.

In this event:

  • Find out about the symptoms and science of ADHD in adults

  • Learn strategies and tricks to overcome procrastination and 'overwhelm'

  • Discover how to turn ADHD traits into potential "superpowers" to succeed in life

For more information or questions about this event, please contact Brendon Bedford.
