About Us

The Association of Migraine Disorders (AMD) is devoted to expanding the understanding of migraine disease and its true scope. Migraine is a full-body condition with a broad spectrum of symptoms, AMD is focused on including many medical specialties in the management of this disease. The centerpiece of this effort is a comprehensive online course to accelerate the training of more medical professionals. For patients, AMD shares the opinions of experts in its series of short podcasts, called Spotlight on Migraine. AMD also holds an annual in-person Migraine Symposium to explore new hot topics in migraine with the help of guests from various expertises. Knowing that migraine has yet to capture the support of the general public, AMD hosts Shades for Migraine, a playful, collaborative awareness campaign. Finally, AMD strives to connect and grow an integrated migraine research community through the Migraine Science Collaborative.
