On Feb.12 and 13, representatives from U.S. Pain Foundation proudly participated in Headache on the Hill (HOH) in Washington, DC. Now in its 11th year, HOH is an event that gathers patients, caregivers, and providers together to advocate on Capitol Hill on issues related to headache, migraine, and cluster diseases. This year marked the largest attendance with a total of over 140 advocates representing 40 states.
Patients who live with headache and migraine have two key opportunities to raise awareness and advocate for themselves in the near future, first with Headache on the Hill on Feb. 13 and 14, and then with Migraine Awareness Month in June. While June may seem far off, those who are interested in participating by obtaining a Migraine Awareness Month Proclamation in their state or town should take action now; steps are listed below.
