Recent research has shown that the ordinary 11 hours a day of screentime that most employees are exposed to has increased by 3 hours every day since the pandemic began. That amount of screen time leads to more headaches and more serious headaches, an often misunderstood and underappreciated concern for employers and employees alike.
In this episode, we are joined by Dr. Charisse Litchman, a neurologist and headache expert that will help us understand the problem and learn how to help.
