We are excited to present the results of our landmark study “Migraine In America 2012” during a live online event on July 31, 2012 at 8PM EDT. This survey was completed by over 2,600 migraine patients in May and June of this year and represents one of the largest studies of this type ever completed.
As we know, the physical pain is merely the tip of the iceberg for individuals living with migraine. Migraine can dramatically impact our lives, careers, and relationships. For example, the data will show that among participants in the survey:
Over 50% report that migraines have negatively impacted their professional development
Over 25% report that they have lost a job due to migraine
Over 40% report that migraines have impacted their relationship with their children
All study results are significantly worse for those suffering from Chronic Migraine, defined as having over 15 days a month with headache symptoms lasting over four hours.
The Migraine In America 2012 Study Live Online Event will cover all this information in greater detail plus provide a review of symptoms, triggers, treatment and therapy options and more. Results will be presented by leading headache specialist Dr. Dawn Marcus from the University of Pittsburgh.
We hope the findings of this study will help bring visibility to the true impact migraine has on the lives of patients and their families, drawing attention to the need for increased funding for migraine research. Please help us in our efforts by inviting friends, family members, and colleagues to join our presentation.
So please join us on Tuesday July 31st at 8PM EDT for the results, by registering now.
Last but not least, THANK YOU to all the community members who participated and made this unique event possible.
