Master of Ceremonies
“As one of an estimated 39 million Americans and 1 billion people worldwide who live with migraine, I understand its debilitating effects, despair, stigma, and utter disruption of every aspect of life. By sharing my story, I hope to connect those living with migraine to quicker diagnosis and treatment, and to help migraine be recognized and treated like the public health crisis it is.”
