Chronic headaches to be focus of free seminar on March 13


COLUMBIA, TN — An occasional headache is a normal part of life for most people, but when headaches occur frequently, they can have a negative impact on one’s quality of life. A free seminar presented by Maury Regional Health on Tuesday, March 13, will address chronic headaches.

Dr. Kita L. Williams, a neurologist on the medical staff at Maury Regional Medical Center who specializes in the treatment of headaches, will be the speaker. Dr. Williams is associated with Maury Regional Medical Group Neurology in Columbia.

“Headaches can vary in type and can have a wide range of triggers, including environmental factors, certain foods or excessive medication usage,” said Dr. Williams. “Headaches are considered to be chronic when they occur on 15 or more days during a month and that pattern continues for an extended period of time.”

At the seminar, Dr. Williams will discuss different types of headaches, including migraines and tension headaches, and their causes. She will review treatment options for headaches that can include medication and natural remedies. There will also be an opportunity for those attending to ask questions.

The seminar will begin at 6 p.m. in the William R. Walter Educational Conference Room at the Maury Regional Annex, located at 1223 Trotwood Avenue in Columbia, across from Maury Regional Medical Center. Refreshments will be provided.

Registration for the free headache seminar is available online here, by email to or by calling 931.381.1111, extension 2445.
