EUROPEAN MIGRAINE DAY OF ACTION - Dublin, September 2015

The theme of European Day of Action for year 2016 was the campaign ‘What’s Under The Hat?’, devised for encouraging patients to share their stories of the impact that headache disorders have on their lives (http://www.europeanheadachealliance.org/under-the-hat/). The goal of the campaign is to inspire public compassion for headache sufferers by making the invisible visible and provide a platform to give patients a voice.
The launch of the campaign took place in Dublin on the 12th of September at the Mayor Residence at the presence of the Lord Mayor of Dublin Mrs Ardmhéara Criona Ni Dhalaigh, the President of the European Headache Alliance Mrs Audrey Craven, MEP Nessa Childers and Prof. Cristina Tassorelli from C. Mondino National Neurological Institute, University of Pavia and UCADH, journalists and patients.
