Today is the first day of National Migraine Awareness Month and there are many ways you can “Help Make Migraines Visible” – the theme of this year’s event.
Participate in the Blog Challenge – Calling all bloggers! You can participate in this month-long event by posting a blog to coordinate with one (or all) of the daily prompts. Don’t have a blog yet? Maybe this is a great way to start…
50 Tweets for Awareness Month – This list was created for you top copy and use on Twitter, Facebook, or other status updates during the month of June.
Take the Migraine in America Survey – The survey will be open through June 15th and we will be sharing results with the community very shortly via a live web event. Thanks to the 2,400 participants so far!
Sign the Alliance for Headache Disorders Advocacy petition – Urge Congress to hold hearings on the impact of Migraine and other headache disorders (friends, family, and colleagues are welcome to sign).
Share and Help Educate – One of the most important things we can do is help educate others about the true impact migraine can have. If a particular article or blog post seems interesting, please share it with friends and family by posting to Facebook, tweeting, emailing, or printing copies.
Here are a few of our most popular posts:

Don’t forget, we will also be hosting the June Blog Carnival. Diana Lee will be accepting submissions through June 8th, and this month’s’ topic is “True Migraine Confessions: In honor of Migraine Awareness Month, give us your most personal, embarrassing or secret stories of living with migraine disease. Be as open as you dare.”
