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, MAY 9TH FROM 11:00AM - 1:30PM 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.
Katie MacDonald is a patient advocate. She was first diagnosed with migraine over 30 years ago. In 2016 Katie left her building career due to chronic migraine. After a brief hiatus from the workforce, she started a new job working for two different migraine non-profit organizations - Miles for Migraine and the Alliance for Headache Disorders Advocacy - where she works on advocacy, raising funds for migraine research and reducing the stigma associated with migraine and headache disorders.
