Established in March 2016, The Danielle Byron Henry Migraine Foundation aims to increase public awareness of migraine disease and its impact on patients, their families, and society.
“The most difficult part of migraine disease is that it is largely unseen and misunderstood,” says Dr. Dan Henry. “This fundraiser is an opportunity for the public to learn more about migraine disease while enjoying a fun evening for a wonderful cause.”
The Foundation is working to build a comprehensive headache treatment center in Salt Lake City.
