What is the Migraine Symposium?
The Migraine Symposium is a free one-day educational and celebratory event that expands our understanding of migraine with the help of presentations by more than 35 experts and advocates from around the country. Each year, we dive into different topics to explore the spectrum of migraine. The symposium is divided into two tracks, one tailored to medical professionals and the other to patients and the general public, however, both programs are open to all attendees.
Presentations from this event will be available from October 3 to October 10. CME credits will only be provided to those who attend the event on October 3, CME credits cannot be granted to those who view presentations after October 3.
