Michael is most known for being an Assistant professor in clinical psychology at UIC, where his research focuses on adverse outcomes associated with ADHD and ways to prevent them. He uses this research at the SUCCEEDS clinic he co-founded.
The research that Dr. Meinzer will be talking about today informed his current project, which is working towards depression prevention for adolescents with ADHD, and is currently being funded by the National Institute of Mental Health. The strategies he will discuss today are currently being used in that trial.
Something that impressed me about Dr. Meinzer is his dedication to mitigating the risks associated with depression and being a present-day pioneer in the field.
