Miles for Migraine - Patient Education Day
In a continued effort to create awareness about migraine and headache disease, we are holding our first annual
“Miles for Migraine Education Day: Creating community and sharing knowledge for people with migraine and other headache disorder, and for their families and loved ones.”
The event will be held on Sunday November 17th from 9:00am-2:30pm.
The day will be both informational and experiential. Our goal is for the person with chronic migraine and other headache disease to both learn and be supported. Topics will cover coping strategies, advocacy, reducing 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 opportunity for open dialogue and experiential participation so that the day is not confined to only lectured information.
Keynote Speaker: Jennifer Tingwald
Often known as the woman who wears an icepack, Jenn’s entire world was turned upside down in the spring of 2015 with the sudden onset of the chronic headache syndrome: Nummular Headache. Having to give up her passion of pursuing a career in nursing due to her primary diagnosis and secondary diagnosis of Chronic Migraine Disease and Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension, she struggled with feeling like she was no longer living with personal ambition and purpose. In 2017, Jenn decided to join the world of patient advocacy which led to her attending her first large scale advocacy event, Headache on the Hill, in 2018.
While Jenn enjoys advocating for rare headache syndromes and conditions, she has found even more purpose in advocating alongside her eight-year-old daughter, Eliana, a fellow Migraine Warrior with Post Traumatic Headache as the result of a Traumatic Brain Injury in September of 2017. Advocating for children with Migraine and Headache Syndromes has allowed both Jenn and Eliana to feel connected and empowered while fighting to end the many stigmas associated with these diseases.
When not advocating, Jenn loves being a dance mom, accountant’s wife, and beauty enthusiast. You can find her on Instagram (@MamasGotAHeadache) and Twitter (@HeadacheMama).
