2021 Migraine Symposium

Virtual Event | September 17-18, 2021

Introduction

The Migraine Symposium is a two-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.

After registering for a Migraine Symposium ticket you MUST sign up for a free Whova account in order to access the event. Sign up using the email address you used when registering for your ticket.
