Our new website is now “live” at www.migraineresearchfoundation.org! We encourage you to visit and view the new information and features. In addition to making it easier to navigate, we’ve added an updated resource section and more information for migraine sufferers. We’ve also streamlined the donation process, making it easier for you to contribute.
Tom Heftler was a founding member of the Board of Directors of the Migraine Research Foundation until his death in June 2007. In his memory, MRF established the American Headache Society/Migraine Research Foundation Thomas E. Heftler Award for Migraine Research. The $10,000 award, open to senior neurology residents and fellows in accredited U.S. medical programs, is intended to encourage new investigators to enter an area that historically has been greatly under-served.
Thanks so much to all who contributed to this memorial fund and enabled us to continue Tom’s commitment to alleviating pain and restoring headache sufferers to healthier and more fulfilling lives. For more information on the award, or to submit a proposal, please go to www.AmericanHeadacheSociety.org.
