The Duke Center for Girls & Women with ADHD is committed to putting the authentic experiences of girls and women with ADHD—and of the people who love and support them—at the center of all of its activities.
There are multiple opportunities for patients, their family members, friends, clinicians, educators, and other professionals to get involved and share their voices and passions. Please see current opportunities for involvement with the Center below.
Listening and Learning Sessions
- The Duke Center for Girls & Women with ADHD has received funding from the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) through its Engagement Award: Stakeholder Convening Support program. This award allows the Center to conduct seven listening and learning sessions.
- Listening and learning sessions invite individuals to share their opinions, thoughts, and experiences via virtual forums. Information gathered during these sessions will inform the direction of research on girls and women with ADHD.
- Specific sessions will include girls and women with ADHD across the lifespan; family members of females with ADHD; and educators, healthcare, and mental health professionals.
- The data generated from sessions, will inform what is studied and how we study it to improve the lives of girls and women with ADHD.
Champions Circle for Girls and Women with ADHD
- The Champions Circle for Girls and Women with ADHD is a group for women with ADHD, their family members, and any other community members who want to become more actively involved in the Center.
- As a Champion, you will receive 1-3 emails per month about different opportunities to get involved in the Center. For example, Champions Circle members may provide feedback on Center content, help decide on a theme for social media campaigns, learn about research opportunities, and receive first glimpses of upcoming listening and learning session topics.

- Do you consider yourself creative? We’d love to see your artwork ranging from paintings, drawings, and brief poems. Submit your artwork to firstname.lastname@example.org for a chance to be featured on our social media platforms and/or seasonal newsletter. Please note that all artwork will be reviewed by our staff for consideration.
- “Experiential Wisdom” are the tips and tricks that girls and women with ADHD use in their daily lives. While not evidence-based interventions, these strategies can still be useful for managing the impact of ADHD on day-to-day activities.
- Do you have any experiential wisdom that you would like to share about how you navigate certain aspects of life with ADHD? Send yours to email@example.com for a chance to have it shared on our social media platforms.
