Submit Migraine Questions for Director of Stanford Headache Clinic, Dr. Cowan

At we love letting you know about unique opportunities to interact with headache disorders experts in unconventional settings like social media. This week presents once such opportunity. Robert Cowan, MD, director of the Stanford Headache Clinic, a headache disorders expert, and a lifelong migraineur, will be answering your most burning questions related to headache disorders.

Stanford Headache Clinic provides an innovative approach for the treatment of migraine and headache disorders by integrating medical, physical, psychological and complementary therapies. Dr. Cowan and his colleagues understand that it takes a comprehensive approach to effectively manage a headache disorder.

I had the opportunity to hear Dr. Cowan speak on a couple of topics at the 2012 American Headache Society's Scottsdale Headache Symposium this past November, and I can assure you he is not only incredibly knowledgeable about a wide range of headache disorders issues, but also extremely committed to educating and empowering patients. In fact, he's serving with me (and Teri and Ellen) on the board for the newly formed AHS patient organization the American Headache and Migraine Association (AHMA).

Submit your questions for consideration now through 5 pm PT on Friday, March 8, and Dr. Cowan will answer a selection of the questions submitted in an upcoming post on the Stanford Medicine Scope blog.

There are two ways to submit your questions for Dr. Cowan:

  1. Post a comment to the Scope blog post: Ask Stanford Med: Stanford Headache Clinic taking questions on headache disorders.
