Miles for Migraine - Patient Education Day
In a continued effort to create awareness about migraine and headache disease, we are holding our annual
Miles for Migraine Education Day: Creating community and sharing knowledge for people with migraine and other headache disorders, and for their families and loved ones.
THIS WILL BE A VIRTUAL EVENT TO BE HELD ON
SATURDAY, JUNE 6TH FROM 11:00AM - 2:15PM EST
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.
Deborah is an advocate living with Intractable Chronic Migraine. Always drawn to wanting to help, Deborah has held employment in the fields of non-profit Human Services and Behavioral Health. Due to increasing debilitation from Migraine disease, after medical leaves and continual decreases in her working hours, Deborah was forced to leave a career that she loved, working with patients with dual diagnoses related to Substance Abuse Disorder and mental health.
Deborah began her journey with Miles For Migraine at the first Philadelphia race. Shortly thereafter, observing the hesitancy of those living with Migraine to speak openly about their disease, Deborah started a public Facebook page, Her Migraine Life, on which she openly shares about her experiences related to Migraine. She is passionate about education, self-advocacy, and especially, countering Migraine stigma. Deborah is a Philadelphia native.
