If You Are A Headache Practitioner Or Researcher
Headache Cooperative of the Pacific
The Headache Cooperative of the Pacific (HCOP) was formed in the summer of 2007 in response to a growing desire for better communication and education among healthcare providers who treat headache patients.
To support access to
appropriate care for our patients.
Join us and be part of a regional network of headache caregivers and researchers.
HCOP is modeled after the very successful Headache Cooperative of New England (HCNE) and under the guidance of HCOP Founding President, Steven Graff-Radford D.D.S., and Founding Director Alan Rapport M.D., HCOP has been incorporated as a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote communication and spread headache information among headache caregivers and researchers, to provide headache education for non-headache specialists, and to increase understanding of headache in the community. Membership is open to all types of headache caregivers and we encourage our patients to form community support groups.
To provide a forum to link providers of headache care throughout the western states.
To increase awareness about national and international organizations and journals devoted to headache research and patient care.
To advance the science of headache through education and coordinated research.
