New Opportunities With School-Based Telehealth: Convenient Connections to Care.
Frey Sean M et al. JAMA pediatrics 2019 Sep (Posted: Sep-10-2019 9AM)

Future studies should test whether telemedicine can similarly improve the delivery of guideline-based preventive care for children with asthma and other chronic conditions, including attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder and diabetes. All children may not benefit equally from school-based telemedicine.

Association of Genetic and Environmental Risks for Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder With Hypomanic Symptoms in Youths.
Hosang Georgina M et al. JAMA psychiatry 2019 Aug (Posted: Aug-15-2019 8AM)

More than a quarter of the genetic risk factors for adolescent hypomanic traits were also associated with ADHD symptoms in childhood and adolescence, with hypomania-specific genetic risk factors detected. This study suggests that ADHD and hypomanic symptoms are associated with shared genetic factors, which should be the focus of further research.
