WorkMigraine by The National Headache Foundation

WorkMigraine is a program developed to help educate and recommend seeking treatment to employees who may be migraine sufferers, employers or Human Resource representatives.

On the first visit to users will be prompted to register with an email address and password. After registration, there is a brief survey to complete about current headache frequency and intensity. After the survey is completed, users will gain access to purchase the appropriate education modules.

Those who have incorporated WorkMigraine into their workplace have experienced a dramatic increase in productivity and a decrease in absences due to headaches. Awareness about headache triggers and treatment options are key to decreasing Migraines and headaches in the workplace. See the link below to get started!
