HR Works COVID-19 Update: Supporting Employees with Headaches and Migraines

In the last episode of HR Works COVID-19 Update, I was joined by neurologist and headache expert Charisse Litchman, MD, to discuss how the pandemic has led to increased screen times and, consequently, increased headaches. Today, we’ll continue our discussion with Litchman, including how HR can help employees prevent headaches and support them in finding treatment and care.
