Soma Sahai-Srivastava, MD, associate professor of neurology, is a board-certified headache specialist who advocates for an integrated approach to the management of headache disorders. But the medical director of the Neurology Clinics and director of the USC Headache Center also is from a town that is well known to Buddhists.

“I went to India in January this year, and met the Dalai Lama at his home in Dharamsala,” she said. “My home town Bodh Gaya is the seat of Buddhism and internationally known for that. I have a special interest in spirituality and healing and the role of human mind.”
