Founded in 1970, the National Headache Foundation is the oldest and largest foundation for patients with headache. Its mission is “To cure headache, and end its pain and suffering.” Its vision is “A World Without Headache.” The foundation is the premier educational and informational resource for those with headache, healthcare providers, and the public. The work of the foundation is through education, awareness, advocacy, and research. In order to help patients access quality healthcare for headaches, the Foundation established the Certificate of Added Qualification in Headache Medicine for physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, dentists, and psychologists who treat headache patients. It publishes a magazine, HeadWise® and monthly e-newsletter, HeadFirst.
“The National Headache Foundation is thrilled to participate in Shades For Migraine to help raise awareness in a creative, fun, and engaging way.”
