Preparing for Your Telemedicine Visit
Top 10 things you should know to make the most of your visit with your provider
Presentation by Anika Salim
Anikah Salim, DrPH,MPH,CPH
Anikah has had migraine since childhood but was diagnosed with chronic migraine with aura in 2015 after experiencing a severe migraine for nearly a year. She was just starting her PhD in epidemiology when her migraine attacks became daily episodes. Trying to manage her condition amidst full-time work and school, Anikah felt alone and as if no one understood the gravity of what she was suffering through. Learning more about her condition and connecting with others in the migraine community, Anikah felt the strong urge to join the movement and advocate for herself and others.
She joined her first Miles for Migraine Walk/Run in the fall of 2018 and increased her involvement in the Migraine Patient Education Days and RetreatMigraine as well as other events. In 2019, she trained with the US Pain Foundation to become a support group leader. Personally understanding the challenges associated with traveling for in-person meetings, in January 2020 Anikah worked with Miles for Migraine to host and lead the first ever weekly Miles for Migraine national virtual support group. There are over 85 registered participants and it continues to grow daily.
After completing her doctoral degree in May 2020, Anikah has been able to dedicate more time to pursuing her passion of sharing her journey and experience to increase migraine awareness and provide support to those suffering from migraine and their families. Whether it is migraine or another chronic condition, she wants everyone to know, "You are not alone."
