The Value of Research and Prevention in Addressing the Societal Burden of Migraine
Ever had a migraine? Know someone who has? Well, you’re not alone: about 12 percent of the U.S. population experience migraine. This disabling condition occurs in both children and adults, but affects adult women three times more often than men, according to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS). During Research!America’s June 15 Capitol Hill briefing, a moderated panel will discuss the debilitating impact of this condition on health, the economy and society. Speakers representing the patient community, providers, government, research, and workforce/disability sector will focus on developments in research, prevention and treatment, and policies to reduce the burden of this illness.
