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 disorders, and for their families and loved ones.
THIS WILL BE A VIRTUAL EVENT TO BE HELD ON
SATURDAY, AUGUST 15TH FROM 10:00AM - 12:15PM CENTRAL TIME
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.
Alicia Wolf: Alicia was diagnosed with chronic Vestibular Migraine in 2016 after seeing multiple doctors that misdiagnosed her symptoms for months. Eventually losing her career to VM, she created The Dizzy Cook as a way to help others who were struggling to follow a strict migraine diet, and develops delicious head-friendly recipes while sharing her personal journey to recovery. Alicia’s focus is on presenting evidence-based natural treatments, along with finding relief through the joy of cooking. Her cookbook The Dizzy Cook: Managing Migraine with More Than 90 Recipes and Lifestyle Tips was released last April on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Target.
Alicia is heavily involved in the migraine community as she currently writes for “Migraine Again” and “Migraine Strong.” She also is the food editor for “My Chronic Brain” and plans local Dallas events for the migraine community through the national non-profit, Miles for Migraine. She is also a member of their patient advisory board. As an Ambassador for the Vestibular Disorder Association, Alicia continues to spread awareness about Vestibular Migraine by working with patients and advocates.
