Lawrence C. Newman

Dr. Lawrence Newman is the Director of the Headache Division at NYU Langone Medical Center, where he also treats patients at the Preston Robert Tisch Center for Men’s Health. As someone who has experienced chronic migraine himself, he knows what his patients are going through. Through the American Migraine Foundation, he works to eliminate the stigma of migraine, improve patient care, and advocate for migraine sufferers. Dr. Newman believes proper diagnosis, treatment, and education make up the cornerstone of migraine therapy, but thinks current therapies are lacking. He hopes to help with advocacy and education not just of patients, but also the general public, to eliminate stigma and ultimately increase funding and find a cure for what is a highly prevalent, disabling disease.
