This is a six degrees of separation experiment for people suffering migraines to see how many can be located in America. Nearly 36 million Americans reportedly suffer migraines, yet the largest patient advocacy group has only 14,000 registered patient members. Join this group to be counted! The NIH is dedicating roughly $13 million a year (less than 0.05% of its annual budget) to headache research when according to the Alliance for Headache Disorders Advocacy, based on relative disease burden, it should be dedicating at least $103 million annually. This is appalling.
Stand up and be counted! It is time to move migraine research forward! See the below link.
