MONTVALE, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun 11, 2018--Health Monitor Network (HM), the leading direct-to-patient (DTP) company in the United States, announces its support of the Association for Migraine Disorders (AMD) and their Shades For Migraine day on June 21 st – officially designated Migraine Solidarity Day. Shades For Migraine is a campaign to promote migraine awareness and create a viral buzz for a disease that affects over one billion people worldwide.

HM will promote the Shades For Migraine initiative across all its consumer channels, including its Migraine Monitor app, its Facebook community for people with headaches, and its network of practices that makes the education materials available to their patients. HM will also work with its other strategic partners to amplify this awareness campaign, including but not limited to, the American Academy of Neurology, the Migraine Research Foundation and the National Headache Foundation.

Furthermore, HM will encourage its employees to show their support by “sharing their shades” through pictures and social media. “Health Monitor Network is proud to support a great partner in the Association for Migraine Disorders, through a little humor, that may help focus attention on a serious subject”, said Marc Jensen, vice president, alliances, partnerships and innovation.

HM has provided patient education materials for headache sufferers throughout its 35-year history. It began with award-winning printed publications, such as Guide to Living with Migraine Headaches, for patients when they see their primary care doctor or neurologist. It continues through HM’s growing network of digital screens in waiting areas and exam rooms at the point-of-care, in the doctor’s office. It is now available on-the-go through the Migraine Monitor app, which helps track headache triggers, symptoms, and treatments, to communities, both anonymous on the app and open on Facebook. Health Monitor Network is the trusted source for headache information to the over 38 million migraine sufferers.
