Introduction

For Immediate Release

 

NEW WEBSITE GOES LIVE TO PROVIDE                                                                           “EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW” ABOUT MIGRAINE

 

AmericanMigraineFoundation.org is New Go-To Site for Migraine, Concussion, Migraine in Women & Children and Impact on Sufferers, Families and the Nation

 

MOUNT ROYAL, NJ (October 28, 2014) – The American Migraine Foundation announced today that its website, www.AmericanMigraineFoundation.org, has been thoroughly redesigned and expanded to provide a wealth of consumer-friendly information on preventing, treating and coping with migraine and other headache disorders. 

The site includes a new monthly “Spotlight,” where migraine sufferers and the public can turn for more detailed information about living and managing many aspects of migraine. “Spotlight” will change topics approximately once a month, kicking off with “Spotlight on Teens and Concussion,” a feature packed with information for parents, coaches, schools and teens themselves on protecting them from head blows and brain trauma in sports.  Among the subjects available are “What Parents Need to Know,” “How Parents Can Spot Concussion in their Children,” videos covering baseline testing for concussion, and a first-person video of a teen soccer player’s recovery after “heading” a ball.

Subsequent Spotlight topics will include Chronic Migraine (attacks that occur 15 or more days a month), Migraine and Holiday Stress, Migraine in Children, Impact of Migraine on Families, and Migraine in the Military.

www.americanmigrainefoundation.org is the companion website to the American Headache Society (www.americanheadachesociety.org), the professional services organization for the world’s foremost clinicians and researchers working in migraine. 

“Whether it’s a parent seeking information on how to prevent, spot, and manage sports-related concussion, a person with migraine looking for the latest research on triggers and treatment, or a family member wanting information on quality of life issues, they will all find what they need on our site,” said David W. Dodick, MD, FRCP (C), FAHS, Chair of the American Migraine Foundation and Professor of Medicine at the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine.  “We want the site to be the ‘go-to’ resource for patients, family members, media, and the lay public on everything headache.”

The site also includes information on migraine/headache resources and support; tips on living with migraine; and information on American Migraine Foundation-funded programs.

The site is also the home of the 36 Million Migraine Campaign, a national public awareness initiative that seeks to raise money to increase the country’s commitment to migraine research.  The campaign, which is chaired by Cindy McCain, seeks to raise $36 million to fund research that wi

ll end the suffering of the 36 million Americans with migraine.

ABOUT MIGRAINE

Some 36 million Americans live with migraine, more than have asthma or diabetes combined.  An estimated three to seven million Americans live with chronic migraine, a highly disabling neurological disorder. Migraine can be extremely disabling and costly, accounting for more than $20 billion in direct (e.g. doctor visits, medications) and indirect (e.g. missed work, lost productivity) expenses each year in the United States. 

ABOUT THE AMERICAN MIGRAINE FOUNDATION

The American Migraine Foundation is a non-profit foundation supported by the American Headache Society and generous donors dedicated to the advancement of migraine research. Its mission is to support innovative research that will lead to improvement in the lives of those who suffer from migraine and other disabling headaches.
