June Is Migraine & Headache
Migraine and Headache Awareness Month is observed every June in the United States. The goal is to build awareness, educate the public and reduce the profound stigma associated with Migraine, Cluster Headaches and other Headache Disorders.
Awareness months for conditions and diseases sometimes carry a reputation for being nothing more than an opportunity to share an awareness ribbon and color. We're definitely emphasizing that, but there are many different ways to get involved and help promote Migraine & Headache Disorders awareness and educate others. Please keep reading to learn more about what's happening.
The theme for 2015 is Inspiring Hope. Here's the logo:
A special note about images: Many people are confused about image ownership and copyright on the Internet. Images found online are not necessarily "free for the taking," even if they appear in places such as Google Image Search. You'll see that Google's Terms of Service note that images shouldn't be assumed to be available for use. The images we use were created by Teri Robert, often using images for which she paid a licensing fee. You may use them for noncommerical purposes as long as you use them "as is," with NO alterations or changes. Thank you.
