Veterans with Headache Diseases

Veterans with Headache Diseases

Today we honor veterans with headache diseases.

Below you will find a panel discussion on 4 key points

  1. Conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan are driving an increase in migraine and
    headache disorders.
  2. The VA system offers cutting-edge technology, but more headache specialists
    are needed
  3. Stigma can deter veterans and active-duty service members from
    seeking treatment.
  4. New therapies, heightened awareness, and stronger social support can help veterans face their migraine and headache disorders.

Veterans’ Access to Migraine and Headache Disorders Treatment:
A Policy Panel Discussion

Can America’s Veterans with Headache Diseases access the Treatment they need?

A 2018 Capitol Hill policy panel sponsored by The Headache and Migraine Policy Forum brought together experts from across the health care and
veterans support spectrum to consider this and related questions. The forum coincided with the 11th annual Headache on the Hill advocacy day, sponsored by the Alliance for Headache Disorders Advocacy.
