Event Details

Led by Jessica Lewis and Rebecca Brook. This is a virtual event.

Migraine is much more than a headache. Because few realize that it’s a neurobiological disease, people with migraine may experience stigma and discrimination. You may feel isolated and shamed, as if no one understands. Our Migraine Community Groups bring together the people just like you to connect, discover and share. We provide helpful resources and supportive discussions to help you better navigate life with migraine.

Time

(Thursday) 6:00 pm PST

Organizer

Miles for MigraineMiles for Migraine creates live, patient-participatory events that reduce the burden of isolation and stigma for people with migraine and headache diseases, and their caregivers. It builds community by bringing people together at fun walk/runs and through educational and support programs. Miles for Migraine also has programs specifically focused on engaging and supporting adolescents. Its programs foster empowerment, increase disease awareness, teach skills to advocate for better access to treatments and raise funds for headache fellowship programs.
