In a continued effort to create awareness about migraine and headache disease, we have developed a Miles for Migraine Education Day. This event will be about creating community and sharing knowledge for people with migraine and other headache disorder, and for their families and loved ones.

The day will be both informational and experiential. Our goal is for the person with headache disease to both learn and be supported. Topics will cover coping strategies, advocacy, stigma, research, and medical advancements. There will be time to join with others in a supportive and safe community.

We have invited local doctors and other providers to give lectures and provide an opportunity for open dialogue and experiential participation so that the day is not confined to only lectured information.

For more information about Migraine Education Day, contact Shirley Kessel at at shirley@milesformigraine.org.
