The following is a Press Release from the Lake Charles Memorial Hospital:

Chances are you know all about the demons of distraction: technology overload, interruptions, multitasking, noisy settings, stress, fatigue, illness, and an unruly mind. But if distractions, inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity are preventing you from working effectively or hindering your personal relationships, chances are you need to know more about Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in adults.

Join Earl J. Soileau, MD,  a family medicine physician board certified by the American Board of Family Medicine and on the Memorial Medical Group staff, to learn more about diagnosing, treating and living with adult ADHD.   

Dr. Soileau is a graduate of Louisiana State University School of Medicine in New Orleans.  He completed his internship and residency in family medicine at W.O. Moss Regional Hospital in Lake Charles, and completed a fellowship in adolescent medicine at the University of Alabama School of Medicine in Birmingham.  He co-authored a chapter on ADHD in the Textbook of Adolescent Medicine, Hoffman, 3rd edition and in 2008 wrote a chapter in the State of the Art Reviews on ADHD.  He currently sees patients and teaches residents at Memorial/LSUHSC Family Medicine Center.

Living with Adult ADHD is a free seminar being held at 12 noon on Friday, August 24, in the Shearman Conference Center at Memorial Hospital on Oak Park Boulevard. Light lunch will be provided, and reservations are required at least 24 hours in advance.
