, elaborates on the tremendous need for headache providers and care specialists in the US. Apparently, there is very little funding from the NIH
for migraines, in fact, less than 0.1% of their budget is devoted to migraines

. Miles for Migraine is a group that raises funding for improving treatment and finding better ways to help people with migraines.
