Hello American Headache and Migraine Association!

Those of you who follow me on are aware that a good portion of my time these last several months has been spent working on a groundbreaking new Migraine and headache patient organization we have named the American Headache and Migraine Association (AHMA).

AHMA is an arm of ACHE - the American Headache Society's committee on headache education.  As such it falls under their 501c(3) status, and all donations to AHMA are tax deductible.

Coming soon is an awareness store chock full of amazing things that will help bring awareness to these disorders, but also help make you a part of this Team Migraine movement.100% of the proceeds from the store go to the organization.

A member forum is a great place to connect with other members and share your experiences while you learn from others.  

Many other opportunities are in the works as well.  A mentoring program, and a lot of really neat ideas.

The best part of this new organization is that we are currently working on our very first patient conference to be held on November 24, 2013 in Scottsdale, Arizona.  

We have some amazing speakers already lined up and ready to talk to you, your families and care partners.  Wouldn't you love to join us?!

This is an amazing opportunity I hope many of you will be able to avail yourself.  Many of us advocates will also be there, and I hope to get the chance to meet you!

For more details on joining the AHMA please see the AHMA blog.

Live your best life,
Ellen Schnakenberg
