Migraine at Work is an initiative of the World Health Education Foundation. Our steering committee includes MigraineAgain.com, the Headache and Migraine Policy Forum, the National Headache Foundation, the American Migraine Foundation, the International Headache Society- Global Patient Advocacy Coalition, and Robert Shapiro, MD, PhD.
Migraine disease is a chronic and often debilitating condition affecting 39 million Americans. Nearly every workplace in the country is impacted by migraine disease through absenteeism and presenteeism. Despite the prevalence of the disease, there is a lack of education and awareness around it. In the workplace, this often leads to unintended stigma and bias against employees living with migraine disease.
That’s why we created this Migraine at Work resource. Together, we’re educating organizations about the workplace needs of individuals living with migraine disease. Our mission is to give employers and employees the tools they need to build healthier, stigma-free and more productive workplaces.
Amgen, Lilly, and AbbVie are proud supporters of Migraine at Work.
