The American Headache Society‘s annual meeting began today in Los Angeles. On Sunday, July 25, findings presented at the scientific meeting will be shared in a public forum. The session will be held from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza.

The scheduled topics are:

  • What’s new in the study and treatment of headache
  • Migraine and headache in children

  • Ask the experts: Answers to your questions

The first sentence of the event press release is “About 28 million Americans – including actor Ben Affleck – suffer from migraine headaches and could benefit from a discussion of the latest advances in headache research and treatment.” Even the AHS knows the importance of a celebrity face.

If you live in L.A., I highly recommend working this meeting into your schedule. To register, call (800) 255-2243 or e-mail For the rest of you, I’m trying to find out if a webcast or transcript of the forum will be available. I’ll let you know what I learn.
