Heads UP – Episode 31: Headache On The Hill – National Headache Foundation (headaches.org) is an annual advocacy event in Washington, D.C. organized by the Alliance for Headache Disorders Advocacy (AHDA), of which NHF is a proud member. With HOH, the AHDA represents nearly all 50 states and unites approximately 200 health professionals, migraine and cluster headache advocates, caregivers, and patients to present requests or “asks” of members of Congress. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, 2021 HOH participants will present their asks of Senators, Representatives, and their staff remotely via Zoom on Tuesday, March 23. These asks are typically focused on improving awareness about the impact of migraine disease and headache disorders on the American public, and the need for increased insurance and disability coverage, as well as research funding.
This year, NHF Executive Director Thomas Dabertin and Daniel King, Advocacy and Policy Associate, will be advocating as representatives of the state of Indiana.
