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.
