The American Headache & Migraine Association’s first patient conference is just a month away, on Sunday, Nov. 24, in beautiful Scottsdale, AZ. Attendees will hear presentations from top headache specialists, learn about treatments and coping methods, and meet other patients and advocates. If you’d like to attend, but can’t afford the travel costs, AHMA is offering eight $500 scholarships to help cover transportation, lodging, and meals. Hurry, though — this Friday, Oct. 25 is the scholarship application deadline!
Wondering how to make $500 stretch to cover your costs? The hotel’s group rate is $85 a night for a room with two double beds and there’s a thread on the AHMA forum to arrange for room-sharing. In addition to providing a free breakfast, the hotel has refrigerators and microwaves in each room so you can store snacks procured at the nearby Trader Joe’s, Fry’s grocery, or Whole Foods. Lunch is included in the $25 conference registration fee. The hotel also offers a free shuttle within a 3-mile radius, free transportation to and from the conference, and an airport shuttle for $10 per room. Other than airfare, it’s possible to make this trip on a shoestring and still have a great time!
