With special guest Michael McCreary

The Power and Peril of the ADHD Mindset

It’s not just for kids. Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), a neurodevelopmental disorder that leads to uneven attention, restlessness and impulsivity, also affects adults. Getting diagnosed and understanding what’s going on changes everything. And yet, 80% of adults with this mindset remain undiagnosed, struggling against an invisible foe – a waste of human potential. Sharing his personal journey from unaware adult to ADHD advocate, Rick dispels the myths, stigma and fear around the disorder, and offers practical suggestions for anyone who has – or think they may have – this mindset.
Michael McCreary

Cultural Collisions: Science Engagement Through the Arts

What do you get when you combine artists and scientists to examine particle physics research? Answer: art@CMS, an educational outreach program of the CMS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider, the world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator at CERN, the European Laboratory for Particle Physics. Science and art may seem like disparate subjects, but they’re far more compatible than you think. Showing images of diverse artwork, Michael demonstrates how fostering the creative synergies between scientists and artists can make complex scientific issues understandable, inspire curiosity about life’s big questions and maximize human innovation potential.
