The 3rd annual Mad Hatter Party goes nautical! The event will be held at the historic, waterfront Squantum Association near Providence, RI. We have found 2 interesting musical acts. New this year, there will be an optional pre-party panel discussion.
We have 2 separate events taking place on Friday, June 23.
The "Hot Topics in Migraine" Panel Discussion is a free event, open to the public. Details below
The Mad Hatter Party is an effort to cross-pollinate ideas from the various communities that have an interest in migraine and pain management. Association of Migraine Disorders is a 501(c)(3) organization committed to changing the public perception and the management of migraine disease.
We have an interest in exploring the relationship between migraine and other related medical conditions, including fibromyalgia, gastrointestinal dysfunctions, concussions, head trauma, pelvic floor pain and more. We believe that the study of migraine disease will help to understand the common neurobiology: genetics, neuroplasticity, dietary influences and hormonal effects on the nervous system.
The evening will provide great food, interesting entertainment and a range of guests including politicians, business leaders, researchers, physicians, people who live with migraine, pharmaceutical representatives, migraine advocates and supporters.
This year’s entertainment will feature the music of La Bella Musica and The Heartland Nomads.
AMD Special Advocacy Award - Senator Sheldon Whitehouse - U.S. Senator, a lead co-sponsor of CARA (Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act) which was the vehicle the carried the STOP Pain provisions so important in migraine research funding.
AMD Innovation Award - Dale Bond, PhD - Brown University Professor and researcher who is interested in the effects of behavioral weight loss interventions on migraine.
AMD Impact Award - Katie Golden - Professional Patient, Writer for Migraine.com, Blogger at GoldenGraine.com, US Pain Ambassador, Patient Advocate, Speaker & Freelance Writer
Being that this is a Mad Hatter event, we hope you will wear a nautically-themed hat. Bring your own or we will have a fabulous hat-making station set up where you can buy an original hat made by RISD students or create a completely new one yourself (for a modest donation).
AMD is proud to announce that this year's emcee will be BARBARA MORSE SILVA, Anchor, NBC 10 News Weekends and Health Check Reporter. And there will be a special video message from Cindy McCain.
When: Friday, June 23, 2017, 2017, 6:00-9:30 pm
