The public awareness series Health & Family, is pleased to introduce its “Doctor to Doctor” campaign, offering DVDs of its recent medical special “Diagnosing and Treating ADHD” available to pediatricians and psychiatrists across the country as an educational tool for patients.

Dr. Josephine Elia, associate medical director at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, is featured in the special as she talks about the latest research and treatment that is allowing more families to better manage Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and alleviate the stigma commonly attached to it. Elia is renowned for her role as a leading authority on child and adolescent psychiatry.

Hosted by Joy Philbin and made possible by McNeil Consumer and Specialty Pharmaceuticals, the show discusses ADHD and the medical and behavioral therapies designed to help children and adolescents suffering from the disorder. Real-life stories from ADHD patients and expert healthcare advice are among the special’s highlights.

According to statistics compiled by the National Institutes of Health, approximately 7% of children in the United States are known to have ADHD and the rate of newly diagnosed cases continues to rise each year. “Doctor to Doctor” is part of a public awareness health campaign, which includes television broadcasts, announcements and advocacy outreach.
