"WHAT: MyMigraineConnection.com and Teri Robert, patient advocate and Migraine expert on MyMigraineConnection.com, have kicked off their popular annual "Putting Our Heads Together" Poetry Contest. The contest, in its ninth year, seeks the most creative and influential pieces of poetry on how Migraine disease and/or headache disorders affect each entrant's lives. Everyone who copes with Migraine disease and headache disorders or lives with someone who does is encouraged to submit up to three poems for the contest - the more creative, the better! To enter the "Putting Our Heads Together" poetry contest, visit: http://www.healthcentral.com/migraine/poetry-contest.html
WHY: Migraine disease alone affects more than 36 million people in the U.S. Another 12 million have chronic daily headaches, which means that they have headaches more days than not. With the "Putting Our Heads Together" Poetry Contest, people can artistically express their daily struggles to help themselves and others cope with these potentially debilitating disorders. MyMigraineConnectio n.com also offers important educational content about Migraine and other headache disorders and an online community where people can connect with others who are dealing with Migraine disease and headaches. Last year's poignant entries can be found here: http://www.healthcentral.com/migraine/c/123/26269/headache-announcing
WHEN: The contest deadline is April 17, 2009 with winners to be presented on April 27, 2009.
