ADHD (Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder) is a serious public health issue. The mission of ADHD Awareness Week is to educate the public about ADHD by disseminating reliable information based on the evidence of science and peer-reviewed research.
The theme for this year’s emphasis is “Get the Facts.”
There are three cultural activities coming up in our region that I’d like to let you know about.
First, at 7:30 p.m. today at Howard Auditorium, Louisiana Tech University’s Department of Music invites you to the Jazz Ensemble’s Winter Concert.
This free to the public performance will be directed by Lawrence Gibbs. I spoke to him about what to expect of this evening’s show, and it sounds like a jazz performance with a lot of variety and excitement.
Anyone who is a regular reader of my column — or who actually sees me on a semi-regular basis — is aware that I lost a significant amount of weight in 2014.
Unfortunately, it’s an almost daily battle between my pragmatism that reminds me that I’m nowhere near done and my optimism that reminds me I’ve done an amazing thing. In 2008, I gained the weight that finally put me at my heaviest, and every January after that I vowed to lose at least that weight again.
