HR Works COVID-19 Update: More Screen Time Means More Headaches

Recent research has shown that the ordinary 11 hours a day of screen time that most employees are exposed to have increased by 3 hours every day since the pandemic began. That amount of screen time leads to more headaches and more serious headaches—an often misunderstood and underappreciated concern for employers and employees alike.

In this episode, we are joined by Dr. Charisse Litchman, a neurologist and headache expert that will help us understand the problem and learn how to help.

Charisse Litchman, MD, FAHS is a neurologist, headache specialist, and medical advisor to Nurx. She received her undergraduate degree at Wesleyan University and her medical degree at Yale School of Medicine. After completing her internship at Yale New Haven Hospital, she completed her neurology residency at Cornell-New York Hospital. She began a solo private practice in general neurology and became board certified in headache medicine in 2008.

She left her private practice in 2018 to become faculty at Yale where she is currently Assistant Professor of Clinical Neurology. Charisse has published articles in headaches and multiple sclerosis and edited the first textbook on a rare soft tissue tumor.  She has earned a certificate in Medical Editing and Writing from the University of Chicago.
