Dr. Richard Lipton and team donate Wolff Award winnings

The American Migraine Foundation would like to congratulate Dr. Richard Lipton and his team for receiving the 2018 Harold G. Wolff Lecture Award for their paper, Identifying Natural Subgroups of Migraine Based on Profiles of Comorbidities and Concomitant Conditions: Results of the Chronic Migraine Epidemiology and Outcomes (CaMEO) Study.

The prestigious Harold G. Wolff Award, named after an eminent pioneer in headache research, is presented every year to a researcher for their significant contribution to our understanding of headache. This is the fifth time Dr. Lipton has received the award.

Dr. Lipton and his team have once again donated the $10,000 prize to the American Migraine Foundation to help support research needed to continue our progress toward understanding migraine and other neurological disorders that cause head pain. We cannot thank Dr. Lipton and his team enough for their ongoing work in the field and their generous contribution to AMF efforts.

Dr. Lipton presented his paper at the 60th Annual Scientific Meeting at the San Francisco Marriott Marquis in San Francisco, CA. In an interview with Montefiore Medical Center, he expressed hope that research into natural subgroups of migraine will help doctors predict which treatments patients would respond to and develop personalized treatment strategies for migraine.

Dr. Lipton is Director of the Montefiore Headache Center as well as the Edwin S. Lowe Professor and Vice Chair of Neurology, Professor of Epidemiology and Population Health and Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
