Lately, there has been a lot of conversation at MyMigraineConnection about different things Migraine and headache disorder patients can do to help end the stigma that surrounds our disease. One of the first steps is to get involved, because let's face it, no one is going to give research funds to patients who don't advocate for themselves.
The National Headache Foundation is holding another conference this weekend in St. Louis, MO called Bridging The Gap Between Patient and Clinician. Migraine specialists from across the country will be on hand talking about how we can increase communication between doctor and patient, start taking charge of our Migraines/headaches and then hear from other patients and their stories.
Please stand up for yourself and all Migraine and headache patients - start by reading You Can Help End Migraine Stigma Now, then attend a conference!
Thanks for reading and feel well,
