Lisa Jacobson

Lisa Jacobson is a migraine sufferer and advocate who runs the website and blog The Daily Migraine. She started the site three years ago during the worst period of the 9,000 migraines she has had throughout her life. She started it to offer hope, help, healing, and humor to people with migraine. Today, with thousands of followers, The Daily Migraine has the largest group of people living with migraine in one place anywhere in the world. Through serving on the American Migraine Foundation board she aims to bring the voice of people throughout the world with migraine to the primary migraine organization in the United States. Lisa hopes the stigma around migraine can be reversed, so that doctors choose it as a field more often, and people and institutions donate more money for research.
