My husband and I attended the NHF Regional Conference, Bridging the Gap Between Patient & Clinician, yesterday in Dallas, TX. So, I'd like to pass along some of the things we learned at the conference.
Serene Branson was the keynote speaker. She shared about her on-air migraine attack that happened in February. She has partnered with the NHF to help educate others about migraine.
There were several doctors there that spoke about related topics. Please join me over the next few days, as I share some of what each of them covered (it may not be new information, but it's always good to refresh and return to the basics).
