What’s Hot at AHS 2017?
Meeting a new attendance record, 1000 headache and migraine specialists are descending upon Boston this year for the American Headache Society (AHS) 2017 Annual Meeting June 8 through June 11.
With a high of 235 accepted abstracts on the latest research into treatment and disease epidemiology, which will be presented during scientific talks and 177 posters, the AHS scientific program committee chair said he’s enthusiastic for this year’s meeting — and for the field overall. In fact, he noted that the theme should be “hope” because of the proliferation of new therapeutic options.
“It’s not just hope in a vague sort of way, it’s very concrete. It’s hope nearly delivered,” Peter Goadsby, MD, PhD, professor of neurology at King’s College London, United Kingdom, and the University of California, San Francisco, told Medscape Medical News.
