I have left the HealthCentral network, and my primary “job” is now writing educational content about Migraine and serving as the Editorial Director for MigraineDisease.com. MigraineDisease.com is dedicated to providing the best quality educational content about Migraine disease as well as information about awareness and advocacy opportunities. All content is reviewed by a UCNS certified Migraine and Headache specialist.
I’ve never done any work with clinical trials, but Dr. Todd Schwedt and Dr. David Dodick asked me to be their co-investigator on the five-year Medication Overuse Treatment Strategy Trial (MOTS) for which they’re the primary investigators. The goal of the study is to determine the best strategy for treating patients who have both chronic Migraine and medication overuse headache. This is a huge problem for patients, and years of experience with the situation haven’t revealed a “best” strategy. Thanks to funding from the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI), we can now address this question and the horrible situation in which it places patients.
