Patient Leader

Rick Green is an award-winning producer, director, writer and comedic performer who has made hundreds of innovative television, radio and stage shows. Like many adults with ADD, Rick first suspected he might have it when his son was being diagnosed. He was surprised by the amount of stigma, misinformation and opinion masquerading as fact. Knowing difference that understanding makes in addressing ADHD, Rick created the documentary “ADD and Loving It?!” and It may seem odd for a comedian to be doing something quasi-educational, but Rick actually has a BSc in Physics and the University of Waterloo named him one of their Top 50 Graduates Of The First 50 Years!
