Sarah Cahill is a freelance medical writer, registered nurse and co-lead of the Migraine World Summit copywriting team. She has experience working in the public health system and understands many of the challenges and limitations of the New Zealand healthcare system, both for patients and clinicians.
Sarah has worked within the not-for-profit sector and has experience advocating for improved access to care and treatment for New Zealanders. She has spent the past 2 years developing relationships with international migraine organisations and agencies, using her migraine blog as a platform to connect with migraine advocates and better understand the global migraine landscape.
Sarah has lived with migraine for most of her adult life. Her episodic migraine attacks transitioned to chronic migraine following the birth of her two children, but through self-advocacy, a greater understanding of migraine disease and many lifestyle changes, is enjoying the rewards of a life less impacted by migraine - a life she hopes can be experienced by more people living with migraine.
Sarah lives in Auckland with her husband Nick and 2 school-aged boys.
