Wayne Burton, MD, former global corporate medical director for American Express, discusses what he views as the key takeaways from a migraine peer exchange he recently participated in.
You recently participated in a peer exchange discussion on migraine. What were some key takeaways from that conversation?
There were a number of highlights and takeaways from the peer exchange. We realized that migraine now affects more than 40 million Americans; many of them, [a] large number— perhaps over 40%– are not diagnosed or are misdiagnosed and there’s lots of opportunities now with new treatments especially for episodic and chronic patients with migraine.
