Miles for Migraine - Patient Education Day
In a continued effort to create awareness about migraine and headache disease, we are holding our second 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 30TH FROM 11:00AM - 12:00PM 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 Golden: Katie is a professional patient, advocate and writer living a fulfilled life with chronic migraine and pain. She worked for 15 years in commercial real estate finance at a community bank in DC, when her episodic migraine attacks became a chronic, everyday occurrence.
Unable to return to her career, she found purpose in her pain through writing and began writing for Migraine.com in 2013. She soon found ways to advocate for others with headache diseases and says that “advocating helped me reclaim any power migraine had stolen from me.”
For the past nine years, Katie has not experienced a break in pain. However, the pain fuels her personal mission: "Never Let Your Pain Go to Waste.” Through her blog, Golden Graine, Katie connects with others trying to navigate life when medical curveballs become the norm.
Katie will discuss making the decision to apply for Social Security Disability (SSDI), how to prepare financially in advance, who you need on your team supporting you and the importance of detail, as well as how to find your new prupose as you transtion into a new era in your life.
Making the decision to apply for Social Security Disability (SSDI) is scary, confusing and emotionally exhausting. We’ll discuss how to prepare financially in advance, who you need on your team supporting you and the importance of drowning them in detail, as well as how to find your new purpose as you transition into a new era in your life.
