Migraine and Headache Education Event in Chicago June 25

Teri Robert @trobert Health Guide
  • Do you have Migraines or another headache disorder and live in the Chicago area? If so, you have a great opportunity available on Saturday, June 25.

     

    The National Headache Foundation (NHF) is hosting a regional conference at the Chicago Marriott Downtown from 12:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Named Bridging the Gap Between Patient & Clinician, the conference brings together those who cope with the disease and the healthcare professionals who make their lives better.

     

    This conference is just in time for National Migraine Awareness Month, and the keynote speaker will be Serene Branson, the CBS reporter whose on-air Migraine with severe aphasia fueled speculation that she might have had a stroke. (See my interview with Ms. Branson in Serene Branson on Migraines and Awareness Month.)
