Mad Hatter Soirée for Migraine Research

The Association of Migraine Disorders (AMD) hosted its second annual Mad Hatter Soirée at Fort Adams State Park on Aug. 7 to support migraine research. The charitable event featured “Alice in Wonderland”-themed lawn games, dinner, dancing and live music.

The AMD Innovation Award was presented to Robert Shapiro, M.D., Ph.D., for his innovative work in migraine advocacy. In addition, award-winning experimental and documentary filmmakers Jacki Ochs and Susanna Styron were recognized with the AMD Impact Award for their pivotal roles in “Out of My Head,” a documentary in the making presented by Eleventh Hour Films that explores the history and mystery of migraines.
