elizabeth sengDr. Elizabeth Seng, assistant professor of psychology at Yeshiva University’s Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology, participated in a TweetChat organized by the American Headache Society (AHS) at their Annual Scientific Meeting in Los Angeles on June 26, 2014. Using the hashtag #AHS14LA, Seng, a member of the AHS’s Electronic Media Committee, and more than a dozen AHS esteemed clinicians working in migraine, headache, and brain injury, contributed to the TweetChat, which highlighted some of the annual conference’s most influential findings along with their clinical implications. Topics included the impact of migraine on the 36 million-plus patients in the U.S. with this debilitating condition; what patients and their support systems can do to reduce the stigma of migraines; what patients should do when they hear claims of a new “cure” for headache; who benefits most from behavioral treatments for migraine; how even retired National Football League players are finding it hard to access quality migraine care; and new findings which indicate that peri-menopausal and menopausal women have more frequent headaches.
