Hampton, VA, Jan. 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Patient Advocate Foundation (PAF) is excited to announce the launch of its new interactive educational widget, Migraine Matters, that empowers those with Migraine and Headache disorders. Created by combining the best resources from top nonprofits and clinical experts in the field of migraine treatment and research, Migraine Matters is an easy-to-use online resource area for patients, caregivers, and physicians. 

“We wanted to create a resource center that above all would be useful and helpful for those individuals who live with Migraine disease every day,” said Erin Bradshaw, PAF’s Chief of Mission Delivery. “I believe that by gathering this vast collection of resources into one location, and making it easy to use, we have accomplished our goal of helping address the practical and financial issues this community faces.”

Migraine Matters features an ever-expanding collection of articles, videos, webinars, infographics, and tools designed to provide relevant information to those seeking assistance or education on the unique challenges associated with episodic and chronic migraine diagnosis.

“I cannot overstate how great it is to have all of these resources in one place,” said Lindsay Videnieks JD, Executive Director of The Headache and Migraine Policy Forum. “We have found it both incredibly useful and easy to navigate.”
