We Need to Talk Series

ASU's College of Health Solutions hosts a series of panel discussions on timely and controversial topics in health. Each session brings together experts from health, medicine, business, policy and law to examine the medical, ethical and legal issues surrounding such topics as diversity in health care, medical cannabis, end-of-life decisions and medical mistakes. This year's six sessions include audience participation in a Q&A format, and each event is also broadcast as a live podcast.

Is it okay to take Ritalin or Adderall if you don’t have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder? Both are stimulants prescribed to treat ADHD and similar conditions, but more and more college students are taking them to stay awake, suppress their appetite, or just because they say it makes them feel smarter when they’re taking a test. They’re buying them from fellow students who have prescriptions. Is this safe? Is it legal?

Join us for a discussion about the sharing of ADHD medications on college campuses. A panel of experts will explore this issue, and the event includes time for audience Q&A. The session will also be recorded as a live podcast.
