American Headache and Migraine Association (AHMA)

 

Mission
Our mission is to help those affected by Migraine and other Headache Disorders find and use our voices to empower patients, family members, friends, and care partners. Through education, support, advocacy, and research we will bring hope and banish the feelings of hopelessness that too often accompany these disorders. We will work to dispel myths and misconceptions, thereby working to eliminate the stigma we face all too often and replace it with compassion and understanding.

  • Help guide what programs we develop to meet the needs and desires of everyone with Headache Disorders.
  • Access to our private, members-only discussion forum.
  • Attend our annual conference.

It's time for necessary research...

Have you ever wondered why other diseases such as breast cancer, ALS, MS, and others have gotten so much attention and NIH research funding? One of the biggest reasons is that the NIH and other agencies pay more attention to diseases and conditions when the patients themselves do two things:

  1. Raise research funds themselves.
  2. Organize and get involved in public awareness campaigns, speaking with Congress, and keeping their disease/condition visible. 

 

 

 

 

Together, we can
make this a reality!
