A couple of days ago, I came across a link to a wonderful podcast with my friend and colleague Dr. Robert Shapiro talking about Migraine. For those of you who aren't familiar with Dr. Shapiro, you're in for a treat with this podcast. In addition to his credentials listed on the Relief site, Dr. Shapiro is a UCNS certified Migraine and Headache specialist and a herculean advocate. He's one of the founders of the Alliance for Headache Disorders Advocacy and continues to be a leader within the organization. I've honestly never seen anyone who could take journal articles, reports, and other materials and analyze them as well as he does. He makes all the mind-numbing statistics make sense!
Robert Shapiro, MD, PhD, is Professor of Neurological Sciences at the University of Vermont College of Medicine, where he is Director of the Division of Headache Medicine. Dr. Shapiro is well known for his work in the migraine field, and in this RELIEF podcast he discusses the problem of migraine, what causes it and how to treat it, and his advocacy work aiming to raise awareness of the condition.

The podcast is also on YouTube, and I've embedded it below:
