Our Mission

The mission of the AMF is to support innovative research that will lead to improvement in the lives of those who suffer from migraine and other disorders.

The Faces of Migraines

Migraines and other disabling headache disorders are often overlooked due to their invisible nature. This project brings to the forefront everyday people who suffer on a daily basis. The goal of this project is to make the public aware of the many diverse individuals these conditions affect as well as dispelling the myth that migraines are just “a bad headache.”
