The immense burden of headache disorders in America has been very rarely considered during the formal deliberations of Congress. On February 14, 2012, the Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions of the United States Senate held a public hearing on Pain in America: Exploring Challenges to Relief. During that hearing, Senator Bernard Sanders of Vermont entered into the Congressional Record testimony on the impact of headache disorders on behalf of the Alliance for Headache Disorders Advocacy.
