Hartford Hospital is grateful for the philanthropic support of Pfizer, which has generously awarded a $75,000 grant to the Hartford HealthCare Ayer Neuroscience Institute Headache Center.

The grant will be invested in the Headache Center’s HEADucation program—a novel headache medicine curriculum that provides online, case-based, interactive lecture series for neurology residents.

“Addressing gaps in headache education will increase providers’ knowledge and comfort in diagnosing and treating migraine and other headache disorders, while also improving patient outcomes and satisfaction with care,” said Brian M. Grosberg, MD, Director of the Hartford HealthCare Ayer Neuroscience Institute Headache Center.

Dr. Grosberg adds that there are plans to publish findings related to the implementation and efficacy of HEADucation, to further develop the program and eventually make it available on a national level for other residency programs throughout the country.

“Hartford Hospital relies on grants and gifts from our corporate partners to sustain our excellence and commitment to innovation and education,” shared Lynn B. Rossini, Vice president of Philanthropy, Hartford Hospital. “We are very thankful to Pfizer for funding our Headache Center’s HEADucation program and supporting the important work that Dr. Grosberg’s team is conducting in educating and training our future providers on how to properly care for patients experiencing headache disorders.”
