JUNE IS MIGRAINE & HEADACHE AWARENESS MONTH!
Many of us have been working hard this month to bring awareness and help end the stigma that surrounds migraine disease and headache disorders. There are blog, twitter and photo challenges, webinars, migraine giveaways and much more. People have shared wonderful blogs, beautiful photos and their inner most thoughts this year. I encourage you to head over to Fighting Headache Disorders for more details and information.
The Migraine and Headache Awareness campaign seems to be working as there is finally some media attention being drawn to it. Ellen pointed out that Pharmacy Times, an online source for pharmacists, wrote about the campaign in "Migraine Sufferers Get Social to Raise Awareness". A recent spot on the KFOR-TV channel in Oklahoma City called "Migraine headache awareness" was encouraging to see as well. While the piece was not perfect, it wasn't half bad either. In the 'for what it's worth' department, KFOR-TV gets extra points for just putting it on the air.
As the month speeds past us, it's nice to see our efforts paying off. Thanks to everyone who is participating, planning and making possible the 2013 Migraine and Headache Awareness Month.
Thanks for reading and happy awareness month,
