The Latest Thinking on Migraine: A Podcast with Robert Shapiro

ShapiroA 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.


To listen to this podcast or read the transcript, go to The Latest Thinking on Migraine: A Podcast with Robert Shapiro.

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

If you use Twitter, you can find Dr. Shapiro there as @headachedoc.

Cindy McCain Speaks Out About Migraine

McCain128 Some of you may remember that I had the opportunity to interview Cindy McCain about her Migraines back in September of 2009. (See Interview with Cindy McCain: Migraine Sufferer, Advocate.)

Mrs. McCain was delightful, but her story was like that of too many Migraineurs - a story of being dismissed by doctors, of having to finally say "No," to her doctor and insist that someone listen to her. At the time of our interview, she was also determined to work toward getting Migraine better recognized so that all of us would have a chance at better treatment.

Things happen in life, and Mrs. McCain has been out of the MIgraine spotlight for a bit. But, she still thinks Migraineurs are "misunderstood, misdiagnosed, and basically are suffering in great numbers across this country with very little help."

I really don't want to give away what she has to say, so please take a few minutes to listen to what she had to say when she talked with Dr. David Dodick of the American Headache Society and the American Migraine Foundation in this new podcast. After you listen to this podcast, please share it with all of your friends via email, Facebook, Twitter, and every way you can think of.

Live well,
