Migraine affects about one in seven people and is the second-most debilitating disease on the planet. It is a serious neurological disease that often runs in families and affects three times as many women as men. CBS Sunday Morning Susan Spencer talks with migraine expert Dr. William Young (SHL 2019 featured speaker); Linda Porter, of the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke; Katherine Foxhall, author of “Migraine: A History”; and Cincinnati artist Priya Rama, whose migraine visions have become key to her art.
The Association of Migraine Disorders talks with the Henry family, who have honored the memory of their daughter and sister lost to migraine disease with the creation of the Danielle Byron Henry Migraine Foundation.
June is migraine and headache awareness month. Nearly one in four households in the U.S. has someone living with the condition. It’s more than just a headache. In fact, the World Health Organization (WHO) found that someone who lives with migraine disease loses on average two and a half years of healthy life.
This month the American Headache Society put the spotlight on Dr. Dan Henry, who has committed his career to improving the lives of those living with headache disorders.
We are thrilled to announce that June will be known as Migraine and Headache Awareness Month in the State of Utah.
