The Association of Migraine Disorders is a 501(c)(3) organization committed to changing the public perception and the management of migraine disease. We have an interest in exploring the relationship between migraine and other related medical conditions, including fibromyalgia, gastrointestinal dysfunctions, concussions, head trauma, pelvic floor pain and more. We believe that the study of migraine disease will help to understand the common neurobiology: genetics, neuroplasticity, dietary influences and hormonal effects on the nervous system.
We will record the panel discussions and will share via social media in the weeks after the event.
