State of headache care in America

Still Waiting

We are all still waiting for medical research to generate, if not a cure, at least improved prevention and treatment of serious headache disorders.  And waiting.  Below is a link to an important article that explains why headache care is a low priority and what needs to happen to end the waiting game.  It is so important, I wanted to repost it here.

Headache Testimony in Congress

The article below was published on the web site of Pacific Rim Headache Center where I receive excellant care by founder Mike Jones, MPAS-C.  It was originally a report of Congress in Feb., 2012.  If you want to know what's going on in the world of medicine and funding with regard to headache care, read this report.
