The Association of Migraine Disorders combines the questions and experiences of patients with the research and training of medical professionals to better understand the symptoms of migraine disease and how it affects people. The AMD website’s ‘Education’ tab divides informative knowledge into patient resources and medical professional resources. The ‘Research’ tab goes into more detailed on the scientific end of things, with opportunities to get involved. You can also get involved by visiting and contributing to any of the links under the ‘Get Involved’ tab.
The AMD separates their website’s educational resources by patient or medical professional. If you’re a migraine sufferer who does not want to have to go to medical school to be kept in the loop on what is causing your pain, you’ll appreciate a patient-focused link over general knowledge with attached medical jargon.
The AMD site displays their scientific studies under the ‘Research’ tab with updated announcements on new studies. They even explain the process of winning grants to fund scientific research so you can see how much your contributions matter to them.
The links under ‘Get Involved’ serve as practical suggestions for supporting the mission of AMD. You can easily donate right through the website portal. If you’re interested in more active engagement, you may want to take advantage of their opportunities for you to ‘Create a Fundraiser’. The AMD is also comprised of many clubs. If you don’t have any nearby or want to start one of your own, the website also gives detailed information on how to go about it.
