Health Services for Students with Migraine at School

Danielle Byron Henry Migraine Foundation Executive Board

On May 5, 2021, the Utah PTA voted to adopt the resolution, Health Services for Students with Migraine at School. This resolution is a giant leap forward that is poised to help students, parents, educators, and health providers throughout the state. Thank you to CHAMP and the Stigma in Education Committee for making this possible!

The Utah PTA will:

  • Collaborate with the Utah State Board of Education to incorporate information about migraine and headache diseases into the required state core health class;
  • Educate its membership about pediatric migraine and headache, and provide educational resources and materials to parents, students, administrators, educators and nurses
  • Support headache disease screenings for the student population and provide resources to parents to conduct screenings in the home
  • Forward the resolution to the National PTA for their consideration
