Join Me for the 2018 Migraine World Summit Beginning April 18

MWSexperts300The World Migraine Summit begins online tomorrow. It's the biggest opportunity to learn about Migraine disease all year. The Migraine World Summit will bring together over 30 top experts, doctors and specialists to share new treatments, research and strategies for Migraine and chronic Headache.

WHY ATTEND?

  1. World-Leading Experts: At the Migraine World Summit, you’ll learn first-hand from over 30 of the world’s top migraine and headache experts, doctors, specialists, from leading institutions including the Mayo Clinic, Harvard Medical School, Cleveland Clinic, Stanford, John Hopkins Hospital, and the International Headache Society.
  2. Full Access: Many of these world-leading experts have long waiting lists and fees that are beyond the affordability of the average insurance policy. Skip the waiting period and get straight into the room with these experts.
  3. Free: The event is entirely free whilst live from April 18-26. Visiting dozens of specialists in one field would take years and costs thousands of dollars. This is an incredible opportunity to hear from dozens of leading experts in migraine for free during the week. After April 26 transcripts and interview copies are available to order.

I'm thrilled to have been asked to be part of this year's Summit. You can see my presentation, They Don’t Get It: Educating Family & Friends on Migraine, on Saturday, April 21.

It's important to get your free ticket NOW by following this link. Once you've requested and received your free ticket, you'll receive an email each day with that day's schedule. 

Information about the event including topics, schedule and speakers can be found at https://www.migraineworldsummit.com/schedule/

Summit presentations commence Wednesday, April 18 at 9.00am Eastern Standard Time (New York). To convert this time into your own time zone visit: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html

From April 18-26, you will be sent a link each day to watch the speakers.

You will have 24 hours to listen to each day’s program, regardless of your time zone. After 24 hours, those interviews will be replaced by the following day's speakers. This is so that as much content as possible can be included in the Summit without exhausting bandwidth restrictions, slowing speed or having to limit volumes during the week.

If you miss some of the sessions, or if you'd like transcripts and videos of the sessions, they'll be available. For your ticket to attend free, or to check out transcripts and videos, just follow the link below.

New Migraine Education and Support Site Coming May 1

Post_image250Over the years, I've worked on several sites and blogs about Migraine disease, among them, MigraineDisease.com. Mostly due to lack of time, MigraineDisease.com has never been as good as it could be. Well! That's changing!

On May 1st, 2018, an all new MigraineDisease.com will be launched. I've teamed up with Migraine and headache patient educator and advocate Tammy Rome and her husband Brian to build the ultimate site for education, support, and advocacy/awareness. Here are some things to know about our new site:

  • All of the content on the site will be original content, not content copied from other sites and writers.
  • Every piece of content is reviewed by a UCNS certified Migraine and headache specialist for accuracy.
  • Our experienced patient educators have a total of 300+ continuing education hours in "headache medicine."
  • We have a medical advisory board consisting of practicing physicians and psychologists who specialize in treating patients with Migraine and other headache disorders.
  • We're Migraine and headache patients too. We know what it's like to live with these diseases/disorders.

For 18 years, I've written Migraine and headache content for About.com and the HealthCentral Network. Don't get me wrong — they've been good years, and I continue to write part-time for HealthCentral. But, it's also a dream come true to write for a site where my partners and I will set the editorial direction for the site and make our own decisions about editorial and other issues. 

I've had Migraines since I was six-years-old. Have gone back and forth between episodic and chronic Migraine, with times during which I had a Migraine every day. Tammy has both chronic Migraine and Cluster Headaches. We both feel incredibly fortunate to be able to attend the same continuing education conferences that Migraine and headache specialists attend, to have built a network of colleagues we can call upon for information and explanations, AND to be able to write content that allows other patients to better understand their Migraines and/or headaches and be better prepared to work as treatment partners with your doctors. We'll also be continuing to develop ways to offer you the support you need to retain hope and live better. Finally, MigraineDisease.com will always provide you with awareness and advocacy information so you can participate in those efforts — in simple, quick ways and in more in-depth ways, depending on your circumstances and wishes.

We're working hard to be ready to launch our new site on May 1st. For now, please visit MigraineDisease.com, and sign up for email updates and announcements.
