About Our Experts
Migraine Survival was started by Dr. Christina Peterson to bring about more awareness about migraine and other headache types, including awareness about all the associated health conditions that exist for headache sufferers. The purpose of this site is for both headache patients and the health professionals who care for them to learn more about headaches in order to achieve better control of their headaches, so that they can live their lives with less pain. All content is written by experts, and is verified by one of our Board of Experts before publication. Revised content will be periodically updated. We may feature books written by headache experts or sufferers that we feel to be helpful from time to time, but will not otherwise advertise on this site. (This site is privately funded by the owner.) Need to contact Migraine Survival? Write to us at [email protected]
