AADPA's 4th annual conference will be held on Saturday, 23 October 2021 as a one-day meeting with both in-person and virtual tickets to allow everyone to attend.
In response to member feedback, this year’s AADPA conference will involve both in-person and virtual tickets to allow members and guests the opportunity to attend from anywhere. As a hybrid event, we have put together a shorter 1-day program that is sure to keep you engaged. The year we will also see the presentation of the inaugural AAPDA Florence Levy Emerging Research Award.
For those attending in person, the conference will be followed by a social event with drinks and canapes providing a wonderful opportunity to network with colleagues from around Australia involved in the study and treatment of ADHD.
