On June 19, 2013, Dr. Manrriquez was named as a Fellow of the American Headache Society!

The American Headache Society (AHS) is a professional society of health care providers dedicated to the study and treatment of headache and face pain. The Society's objectives are to promote the exchange of information and ideas concerning the causes and treatments of headache and related painful disorders. Educating physicians, health professionals and the public and encouraging scientific research are the primary functions of this organization. AHS activities include an annual scientific meeting, a comprehensive headache symposium, regional symposia for neurologists and family practice physicians, publication of the journal Headache and sponsorship of the AHS Committee for Headache Education (ACHE).

History

Founded April 8, 1959, during the annual meeting of the American Medical Association (AMA), AHS brings physicians from various fields and specialties together to share concepts and developments about headache and related conditions. 

To supplement its annual scientific meeting, AHS developed an annual headache symposium in 1970 that continues today. The symposium addresses a variety of topics, with the goal of teaching health care professionals. AHS now holds one teaching symposia a year in addition to its scientific meeting. 

In 1990, the Society formed the American Council for Headache Education (ACHE), a partnership between patients and health care professionals devoted to enhancing public understanding of this wide-spread and underestimated illness. ACHE is now known as the AHS Committee for Headache Education.

Mission Statement

The educational objectives of the American Headache Society (AHS) are to continue to improve the knowledge, skills and professional performance of physicians, psychologists and other health professionals in the care of patients with head, neck and orofacial pain by:

  • Providing a forum for presentation of free scientific communication on research and clinical practice 
  • Providing educational symposia 
  • Improving education in medical schools and residency programs 
  • Identifying and developing new educational initiatives 
  • Supporting educational programs directed to people with head, neck and orofacial pain.
