AMD expands the understanding of migraine disease and its true scope. It is focused on including many medical specialties in the management of this disease. The centerpiece of this effort is a comprehensive online course to accelerate the training of more medical professionals. For patients, AMD shares the opinions of experts in its series of short podcasts. AMD believes that migraine has yet to capture the support of the public; it hosts Shades for Migraine, a playful, collaborative public awareness campaign. AMD also connects and grows an integrated migraine research community.
Clusterbusters raises awareness for cluster headache. This form of Trigeminal Autonomic Cephalalgia is considered more painful than childbirth, kidney stones and gunshot wounds. Cluster headaches are often nicknamed “suicide headaches” and respond best to high-flow oxygen. Clusterbusters furthers cluster headache research by partnering with and advising medical professionals and innovators to develop new treatments. It educates medical professionals and the patient community in order to reduce time to diagnosis and increase access to appropriate treatments. Clusterbusters’ online and face-to-face support and education helps patients lead their best lives and, sometimes, saves lives.
