GHLF is also a staunch advocate for vaccines. The Global Healthy Living Foundation is the parent organization of CreakyJoints®, the digital arthritis community for millions of arthritis patients and caregivers worldwide who seek education, support, activism, and patient-centered research through ArthritisPower® (ArthritisPower.org), the first-ever patient-centered research registry for joint, bone, and inflammatory skin conditions, and hosts PainSpot (PainSpot.org), a digital risk assessment tool for musculoskeletal conditions and injuries. Visit www.GHLF.org for more information.

These videos contain images, flashing lights, and/or visual sequences that can be a migraine trigger for some. We balanced the need to powerfully portray migraine disease with the possibility that video mediums can be hard for some folks with migraine.
