Migraine on NPR’s Diane Rehm Show Thursday

This Thursday, August 16, Migraine will be featured for an hour on the Diane Rehm show on NPR at 11:06 a.m., eastern time. Living With Migraines and the Search for New Treatments will feature a panel of four who will discuss the issues and answer audience questions.

I’m excited to share with you that I’ll be one of the panelists for this exciting event. The other three panelists are:

  • Dr. Perry Richardson: neurologist at George Washington University Hospital.
  • Dr. David Dodick: Migraine specialist and director of the headache center at the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, Arizona; chairman of the American Migraine Foundation.
  • Dr. Story Landis: director of the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), National Institutes of Health (NIH).

The Diane Rehm ShowIf you don’t get an NPR station that broadcasts the Diane Rehm Show, never fear! WAMU 88.5 in Washington, DC, makes it easy by streaming live here, so you can listen online.

This will be an hour of exploring what it’s like to live with Migraine, what treatments are under development, and the challenges of developing treatments, including research funding. What it won’t be is an hour of listening to the same old thing or to the four of us pontificate on our views. YOU, the audience, will be part of the show by asking us questions via telephone, Twitter, or email.
