International Headache Academy (IHA) Research Award

The International Headache Academy, co-sponsored by the American Headache Society (AHS), American Migraine Foundation (AMF), Canadian Headache Society (CHS) and International Headache Society (IHS), was designed to inspire a long-term commitment to headache medicine in young neurologists and research scientists via an educational program focused on clinical and research aspects of headache medicine. It is the continued goal of each Society to raise the level of education and improve patient care while attracting young clinician scientists to a career in headache medicine.

To this end, a number of small research awards are available to selected IHA participants who have submitted an optional research proposal. The IHA Scientific Advisory Board will review and select recipients who will present their findings at the following year’s AHS Annual Scientific Meeting.
