Andrew Hershey, MD, PhD, FAHS, received his undergraduate degree at the University of Iowa, Iowa City, Iowa. He earned an honors degree in biochemistry; his research involved the enzyme kinetic properties of alcohol dehydrogenase in yeast.
After undergraduate school, Dr. Hershey attended the MD/PhD program at Washington University, St. Louis, Missouri. His PhD research thesis was entitled: "The Rat Substance P Receptor: cDNA and Genomic Cloning, Functional Expression, mRNA Distribution, and Mutational Analysis of Desensitization Responses."
After earning his MD and PhD, Dr. Hershey was an intern and resident in pediatrics at St. Louis Children's Hospital, St. Louis, MO. He then was an adult neurology resident at Barnes-Jewish Hospital, St. Louis, MO, followed by his child neurology fellowship at St. Louis Children's Hospital, St. Louis, MO.
After his fellowship, Dr. Hershey joined the faculty at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, Ohio, within the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, where he is director of the Headache Center.
Dr. Hershey's research interests currently include the improved diagnosis and treatment of childhood headache disorders, characterization of outcome responses, studies in new pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatment regimes, and the neurogenetics of migraines.

Marielle A. Kabbouche, MD Child Neurologist, Division of Neurology 513-636-4222
Child Neurologist, Division of Neurology
Associate Professor, UC Department of Pediatrics
Headaches; migraines; acute and inpatient treatment of intractable headache
Marielle Kabbouche, MD, received her training in child neurology at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine. She moved to Cincinnati for a specialty training in pediatric headache medicine. The position was the first for a pediatric neurologist.
After her headache training, she stayed at Cincinnati Children's as faculty and an active member of the center with involvement in all academic as well as clinical and teaching aspect of pediatric headaches. Since that time, she has been proud to be part of the maturing center that gradually developed to be the largest and most academically productive pediatric headache program in the United States and worldwide. She has been a co- PI on multiple NIH grants since 2002, and has been involved in multiple pharmaceutical and clinical studies in pediatric and adolescent migraines.
Her career has been focused on acute treatment of intractable migraines in children in emergency room, as well as inpatient, settings.
As the director of the inpatient headache unit, Dr. Kabbouche was actively involved in setting an acute headache infusion center as well as an inpatient headache unit at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. The headache acute care unit has been very productive in the last few years, seeing about 200-300 patients/year during peak seasons. The inpatient unit opened in July of 2011 bringing specialty care to headache patients with a team of six providers, fellows, residents and nurses. This approach to intractable headache care will have a great impact on patient’s outcome.
Dr. Kabbouche has over 25 publications and a track record of numerous book chapters and peer-reviewed papers, reviews, and abstracts in the field of headache medicine. She is also an editor of a pediatric headache book.
