Landes, London study on self-reported ADHD and adult health published

Landes_London"Self-Reported ADHD and Adult Health in the United States," co-authored by sociologists Scott Landes and Andrew London, was published in the Journal of Attention Disorders. Landes and London investigated the relationship between self-reported ADHD diagnosis status and adult health, and whether observed associations are attenuated by biomedical and socioeconomic factors. They concluded that research on adult health outcomes for those with ADHD should include consideration of the mechanisms by which a diagnosis of ADHD leads to cumulative social disadvantages that independently contribute to poorer health outcomes. 01/19/21
