There is no condition of such magnitude - yet so shrouded in myth, misinformation, and mistreatment - as migraine.

Migraine Research Foundation Announces
Newly Expanded List of Children’s Headache Centers

The Migraine Research Foundation (MRF) today announced the latest resource available on its website:  a newly expanded list of Children’s Headache Centers, available at www.migraineresearchfoundation.org.  This is the only list of its kind.

Although 10% of all school-age kids suffer from migraine, they are often undiagnosed and untreated. MRF’s list is organized by state and includes the ages of patients doctors will see to make it easy to identify and locate help for kids who suffer.

MRF’s new Children’s Headache Center list is part of its "For Our Children" initiative, launched to raise funds to move the science of childhood migraine forward and provide information and resources to combat the disruptive effects of  migraine disease on kids and their families.  The Migraine Research Foundation is the only nonprofit whose sole purpose is to fund research to end the debilitating pain of migraine and alleviate the suffering caused by this disabling disease affecting 1 in 4 American families.

In spite of the prevalence of migraine and its serious effect on individuals, families, and society, research into its causes and treatments is severely under-funded. MRF raises money to award research grants for work in innovative areas that hold the promise of unlocking the mysteries of the disease. Since 2007, 24 grants have been awarded and 11 have been completed. All operating costs are underwritten, so all money raised goes directly to fund research.

The Children’s Headache Center list, as well as more information about migraine disease and the work of the Migraine Research Foundation is available at www.migraineresearchfoundation.org.
