BRIAN GIFFORD PHD
As Director of Research for the Integrated Benefits Institute (IBI), a non-profit association, Dr. Brian Gifford’s work examines the workforce productivity implications of issues such as health risks and chronic conditions. Dr. Gifford knows a thing or two about migraine. He’s the author of the 2013 study, Sharing the Pain: Productivity of Employees with Migraines and Chronic Headaches. In addition to giving insights to employers on migraine and headache disability, the study served as a catalyst to get people talking about how to engage people affected by frequent migraine and headache more effectively.
