Heads UP -Episode 76: Migraine Stigma, Disability, and Workplace Discrimination

In Episode 76 of Heads UP, Dr. Robert Shapiro talks to Dr. Lindsay Weitzel about the stigma and workplace discrimination experienced by people with migraine and other headache disorders. Do you know what the “legitimacy deficit” is in reference to migraine?
