June 17th Wednesday was a beautiful night for Nippon Club to host the 35th Health Seminar in cooperation with JMSA at the 5th floor Sakura Room. The topic was “Understanding Headaches,” and the lecture was presented by Dr. Hiroki Nariai who is currently a pediatric neurology fellow at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Montefiore Medical Center.

Dr. Nariai started his presentation by explaining the different symptoms and treatments involved in various types of headaches such as migraines, tension type headaches, and cluster headaches. He further addressed how some types of severe headaches, such as subarachnoid hemorrhages, are life-threatening and how we can distinguish a serious headache that may require immediately attention from a non-serious one. Dr. Nariai also introduced some of the most recent technologies in neurological medicine in a very understandable way in which all audiences were able to enjoy regardless of their background.

The seminar ended successfully with a Q&A session and a reception where light snacks and wine were served. Guests and staffs were able to enjoy the rest of the night with each other and also with Dr. Nariai himself.

The next Health seminar will be held in October—details to come soon!
