TEDxSanDiego Local Speaker Search Winner Alan Brown brings unfettered attention to the affects of ADHD. Experiencing this firsthand as a sufferer of ADHD, Brown shares a glimpse of his life functioning with the undiagnosed disease. This disease leads to multiple secondary issues that leave people depleted of living a full and complete life. Brown gives us a call to action to be advocates to bring awareness and attention to ADHD so individuals do not fall through the cracks and have the safety net they need to succeed.
