HEADquarters Migraine Management was founded by Dr. Christina Peterson to fill the need for migraine education and awareness.

Our mission is to promote the patient-centered care of headache and migraine, to promote migraine awareness, and to remove barriers to the self-management of migraine as a lifelong disorder.

Our Founder and President

Christina Peterson, M.D. has been in the private practice of neurology since 1986 in the Portland, OR, area, and is presently medical director of The Oregon Headache Clinic, providing diagnostic expertise and partnering with patients to explore traditional and alternative solutions to their headaches in a patient-centered setting. Dr. Peterson is active in the local county and state medical societies, serving on the board of trustees of both. She is also a member of the National Headache Foundation, The American Headache Society, and the International Headache Society. Dr. Peterson is a reviewer for the journal Headache, and occasionally participates in drug studies. She speaks frequently on the subject of migraine and other headaches to hospitals, employers, physicians, and nurses.

Dr. Peterson was initially educated as an R.N., and worked for seven years as a critical care nurse in Southern California while completing pre-medical studies at UCLA and California State University at Long Beach. She attended medical school at the University of Southern California, graduating in 1982, and completed a general medicine internship at the Huntington Memorial Hospital in Pasadena, CA.
