Association of Migraine Disorders
The Association of Migraine Disorders is the May 2019 Non-profit of the Month and will be receiving 10% of all Achy Smile Shop purchases (excluding Chronic Migraine Awareness Collection).
The Association of Migraine Disorders strives to expand the understanding of migraine and its true scope by supporting research, education, and awareness.
Since its inception in 2012, the Association of Migraine Disorders (AMD) has devoted to expanding the understanding of migraine disease and its true scope. Because migraine is a full body condition with a broad spectrum of symptoms, AMD is focused on including many medical specialties in the management of this disease. The centerpiece of this effort is a comprehensive online course to accelerate the training of more medical professionals. For patients, AMD shares the opinions of experts in its series of short podcasts. To educate and bring together the migraine community, AMD hosts a symposium and migraine awards dinner each year. Additionally, AMD strives to connect and grow an integrated migraine research community. In 2019, AMD hosted it’s first Migraine Research Roundtable to identify challenges and gaps in migraine research. For more information on AMD, visit migrainedisorders.org.
Finally, AMD believes that migraine has yet to capture the support of the general public and therefore it hosts Shades for Migraine, a playful, collaborative public awareness campaign. On June 21, Migraine Solidarity Day, AMD asks everyone to show they care and wear a pair of sunglasses in support of those living with migraine and then prove it with a photo posted to social media with the hashtag #ShadesForMigraine. Last year, the campaign reached more than 2.6 million people in over 16 countries. Join us in making an impact by visiting ShadesForMigraine.org.
