The HCNE Lifetime Achievement Award: The Megrim

This annual award of HCNE recognizes an individual’s cumulative outstanding contributions to the improvement of our understanding of headache disorders and to benefit the welfare of patients who suffer from them.

Megrim is an archaic word for migraine. It is also the name of a flatfish found in the waters of the Atlantic. Since 2009, the award has taken the form of a framed original 19th century wood-block engraving of the megrim fish.
