In light of the current COVID guidelines and restrictions, we have redesigned our Education Days to be online, free and shorter in length while still delivering up to the moment information and valuable education on migraine and other headache diseases.
Our usual Education Day is delivered through lectures and experiential sessions. Our new format will include both, when possible. We vary the sessions topics so you can attend those that are of interest to you. Topics will cover coping strategies, advocacy, reducing stigma, research, and medical advancements. All presenters will field your questions. Join us for as many events as you are able. Each event will feature different content
