Join us for a virtual lunch and learn about The Black Headache Study led by WCH’s Dr. Suvendrini Lena!

Join us for The Black Headache Study – It’s Not Just a Migraine! – a virtual lunch and learn event on Wednesday, February 15 from 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. for an important discussion on headaches and their disproportionate effect on Black communities.

With guidance from the Office of Equity’s Janelle Noel, a panel of experts will discuss headaches as one of the leading causes of disabilities in adults worldwide and how systemic discrimination impacts the ability of Black patients to receive diagnosis and follow-ups, resulting in limited differential diagnosis, underestimated prevalence rates, barriers to treatment and poorer health outcomes.

The event will include panelists Stacia Stewart, Angie Antonio, Dr. Candice Todd-Aziz and study research coordinator Muhanad Ali, who will discuss institutional commitments to understanding and removing barriers to care for Black patients. The discussion will highlight the group’s innovative research to support Black patients who suffer from headaches with the purpose of garnering suggestions for delivering more effective care.

The event is part of Women’s College Hospital’s programming to celebrate, learn and reflect during Black History and Futures Month.
