New Advisory Council Members Reflects Company's Mission to Empower People with Migraine to Suffer Less and Live More

Online PR News – 15-November-2016 – Atlanta, GA – Today, Migraine Again LLC announced a new council convened to provide advisory support to the company’s leadership team on its health care content and patient advocacy work.

The Advisory Council composition reflects Migraine Again’s commitment to evidence-based medical content and reflecting the unique needs of migraine patients. Andrew C. Charles, MD, will chair the Council, along with six other health care leaders, many of whose lives have been personally affected by migraine.

The formation of this group represents Migraine Again’s commitment to engage the medical, media and patient communities in making world-class health information accessible 24/7 to 1 billion migraine sufferers around the world. In the US alone, the ratio board-certified headache specialists to migraine patients is 1 to 85,000, resulting in most patients seeing doctors with limited headache expertise. Due to geographic, financial and cultural constraints, access to quality migraine care is an issue that increases the burden of migraine upon society.

“Even seasoned migraine sufferers are often unaware of all the resources available to them to better control the effect of migraine upon their lives” said Paula K. Dumas, CEO and Managing Editor of Migraine Again LLC. “The leaders on our Advisory Council understand the unique challenges migraine sufferers face, and will collaborate with us to help reduce the burden upon each patient, the economy and society.”
