The Association of Migraine Disorders (AMD) is devoted to expanding the understanding of migraine disease and its true scope. Because migraine is a full body condition with a broad spectrum of symptoms, AMD 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 also believes that migraine has yet to capture the support of the general public and therefore it hosts Shades for Migraine, a playful, collaborative public awareness campaign. Finally, AMD strives to connect and grow an integrated migraine research community.
