February 11, 2019 @ 8:00 am - February 12, 2019 @ 5:00 pm
This is an annual lobbying event in Washington DC, organized by the Alliance for Headache Disorders Advocacy (AHDA). The AHDA brings health professionals, migraine & cluster headache advocates and patients themselves to unite on our requests or “asks” of Congress. These asks are typically focused around improving awareness about the impact of Headache Disorders and in turn impacting the available research funding.
Headache on the Hill (HOH) is a two day event each year; The first day includes an issues briefing and advocacy training session. The second day is for HOH participants to visit the offices of their respective congressional delegation on Capitol Hill. The AHDA will pre arrange appointments with the offices of at least one congressman and two senators for each HOH participant.
