Our community made great strides at this year’s Headache on the Hill, led by our partner, the Alliance for Headache Advocacy Disorders (AHDA). We met with hundreds of offices to ask our members of Congress to support requests for specific report language. The requests would direct the Social Security Administration (SSA) to include headache diseases in its disease listings eligible for disability, and direct the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to prioritize research on migraine and headache diseases via the HEAL (Helping to End Addiction Long-Term) Initiative.
There are only 3 days left for us to gain additional support of these asks. Fortunately, AHDA has made it easy for you to reach your members of Congress. Through their platform, it takes just 1-2 minutes to send a personalized email to the right person. AHDA has included detailed information on the “asks” for Congress, why these issues are important to our community and the specific report language that we’re seeking. Go to AHDA’s Action Alert and send your email TODAY!
