The legacy of Dr. Seymour Diamond, a pioneer in headache medicine, April 15, 1925 – Oct. 11, 2019
When Dr. Seymour Diamond started exclusively treating headache in 1972 he could count on one hand the number of physicians throughout the U.S. just focusing on treating this disorder. He went through a great deal of frustration and difficulty forming the National Headache Foundation. However, there are now two thousand different headache clinics that are active. The NHF has helped to make headache a serious disorder.
The NHF was founded by Doctor Seymour Diamond in 1970, and we hope to continue Dr. Diamond’s legacy through increasing public awareness about headache, supporting research, and advocating for those experiencing headache.
