Beneficially impacting teenagers' knowledge and ability to deal with migraines

Migraines are a growing epidemic, without a lot of medical research there is no definite cause or cure for migraines. My migraines came about when I was twelve years old, suffering through school I found some days unbearable, doctors never had a straight answer as to what triggered my migraines and they prescribed me a variety of prescriptions. I feel that I can help those students of River High School in Carmel, CA by spreading my knowledge to them about how important diet is in everyday life. Those who may not suffer from migraines will benefit by learning the importance of diet, physical activity, sleep, and minimizing stress.
