2022 Migraine Symposium

Virtual | September 9 & 10, 2022

In-Person at The Omni Hotel, Providence, RI | September 10, 2022


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.

 Why Attend In-Person?

The live portion of this event will be held at the Omni Hotel in Providence, Rhode Island.

After two years of virtual-only events you may be wondering why you should attend this symposium in-person. This year, we have so many exclusive offerings for our in-person attendees! Here's what you can expect to get out of the in-person event.

  • Procedure Demonstration Room - In-person attendees will have access to a room where they can actually try certain migraine therapies such as cryotherapy, neuromodulation devices, chiropractic techniques and more. This gives you an opportunity to test out a therapy for free to see what it is like. 
  • All in-person attendees will receive a tote bag including items valued at a total of over $100.
  • Connect with others! We will have numerous breaks for attendees to connect and network with one another, including speakers, other guests and exhibitors. This gives you an additional option to learn and make connections.
  • Migraine Friendly Room - We know it can be difficult being in a new environment when a migraine attack comes on. This event will feature a quiet, dark, scent-free space where people can retreat to help ease symptoms without having to leave the event altogether. 
  • Lunch & cocktail party appetizers are all included with the in-person ticket price. 

Event Schedule

September 9 is VIRTUAL ONLY.

September 10 is HYBRID, all presentations will be done in-person and streamed for virtual viewers.

The procedure demonstration room is IN-PERSON ONLY.
