Our Core Beliefs

  • Migraine is more than just a headache; it is a major disabling neurological disease

  • Public funding for migraine research is disproportionate

  • Research and awareness are the answers.

  • We must reduce the stigma of migraine

  • We must promote better and earlier diagnosis and treatment

  • We must minimize the barriers to expert care and innovative disease-specific treatments
