On June 15th, Shades for Migraine is holding a beach celebration to raise awareness for migraine to make the biggest noise for June 21!
Where: Second Beach Middletown/Newport RI
When: 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, June 15th. We will be wearing purple sunglasses under a big purple tent, you won’t miss us!
What to bring: Upbeat energy and your friends and family! We will provide you with official SFM purple shades and informational handouts. Please also bring anything you normally would to a beach, i.e. sunscreen, towel, beach chair, etc. Snacks and water will be available but you are welcome to bring your own food as well.
What to expect: There is power in numbers. We want to have a big group there to show support for people with migraine. Attendees will be asked to start conversations with people on the beach, take pictures and hand out informational cards and sunglasses. If you aren’t interested in talking to others or handing out cards and sunglasses, we still want to see you there! By just being there, you are helping take a stand against migraine!
This event will feature photo stations, yard games and giveaways. It’s also an opportunity to connect with other people in your area who have migraine. You won’t want to miss it!

Association of Migraine DisordersThe 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.
