2021 Southern Headache Society CME Meeting


Due to the rapid rise in the Delta variant, Southern Headache Society made the decision to postpone its full Scientific Meeting opting for a shortened 1 day CME Meeting. This event will focus on topics such as: pregnancy and migraine, history of headache treatment, biobehavioral therapies, photophobia, migraine and epilepsy, and adding monoclonal antibody to Botox.
