    The Role of Lifestyle Factors in Migraine and How to Implement Behavioral Change: A Podcast with Elizabeth Seng

    The Role of Lifestyle Factors in Migraine and How to Implement Behavioral Change: A Podcast with Elizabeth Seng

    Elizabeth Seng, PhD, is an associate professor of psychology at Yeshiva University in New York City, US. Seng, who is a clinical psychologist and researcher, broadly focuses her work on behavioral management of pain and headache disorders, particularly migraine. She is interested in the psychosocial factors associated with migraine attack onset, higher attack frequency, and migraine-related disability. She is also interested in improving acute medication adherence.
    Seng recently co-authored a Lancet Neurology review article discussing the role of lifestyle factors in migraine and how behavioral change interventions can address them. In this MSC podcast, Seng speaks with Kayt Sukel, a freelance science writer based outside of Houston, Texas, to discuss some of those lifestyle factors, including stress, sleep, diet and physical activity, and the best way to implement behavioral change to improve migraine.

    Career Advancement in the Headache Field: What Are the Obstacles? A Podcast with Irene de Boer and Gisela Terwindt

    Career Advancement in the Headache Field: What Are the Obstacles? A Podcast with Irene de Boer and Gisela Terwindt

    In a recent study published in Cephalalgia on September 7, 2022, an international group of researchers reported results from a global online survey on perceived barriers to career progression in the headache field. The survey focused on career obstacles in four domains: professional recognition, opportunities in scientific societies, clinical practice, and salary and compensation.
    Nearly 600 professionals in the global headache field responded to the survey, with gender emerging as the most important barrier in nearly all of the four domains. Country of birth also surfaced as a key barrier.
    In this MSC podcast, Irene de Boer, first author of the study, along with senior author Gisela Terwindt, sit down with Lincoln Tracy, a research fellow and freelance writer from Melbourne, Australia, to delve deep into the findings from their new work.
