Free Support Group for Adolescents
The Danielle Byron Henry Migraine Foundation is sponsoring free, professionally moderated support groups for individuals between the ages of 13 – 19*.
*Age exceptions will be made on a case-by-case basis. Please email to inquire.
The support group sessions will be moderated by Beth Gargaro, M.D.
Dr. Beth Gargaro (or “Dr. G” as she’s known by many of her patients) is a resident at the University of Utah in the fields of Pediatrics, General Adult Psychiatry, and Child & Adolescent Psychiatry (aka “Triple Board”). She chose this combination of fields due to her passion for working with young people and interest in the overlap between mental and physical health. She strongly believes in the mind-body connection and is excited to have an opportunity to work with adolescents who are discovering how their physical health impacts social/emotional health and vice versa.

Dr. G originally hails from Ohio, but graduated with highest honors from University of Georgia with her B.S. in Microbiology and Genetics. She spent a year in a Pharm.D program there, pursuing clinical pharmacy, before realizing that her true calling was in medicine. She returned to the midwest to attend the University of Michigan Medical School, where she graduated AOA (the medical school equivalent of honors society) and was involved in musical theater and recruitment. She was also on the admissions committee, volunteered at a student run free clinic, and was active in a service organization while a student at Michigan. In 2014, Dr. G moved Salt Lake City to complete her residency. She will finish her specialty training in 2019.
Outside of work, Dr. G enjoys gardening, doing DIY projects with her wonderful husband, Paul, taking walks with their two dogs, Paddington and Izzy, and enjoying all the outdoor activities/beautiful scenery Utah has to offer.
