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.

Migraine Gem - Migraine and Vasodilation

MigraineGemsPurpleFor many years, the prevalent theory about Migraines was the "vascular theory," which was that Migraines occurred due to a fraction of a second of vasoconstriction (constricting or shrinking of blood vessels) followed immediately by vasodilation (the dilation or opening of blood vessels too wide).

At one of the American Headache Society conferences I attended, one of the presentations was Migraine Pathophysiology Update, presented by Dr. Andrew Charles, the Director of the Headache Research and Treatment Program at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA.

During his presentation, Dr. Charles made a statement, backed by research, that clearly demonstrates that there's far more to Migraine than the vascular theory could explain. He stated,

"Dilation of blood vessels is neither necessary nor sufficient for causing Migraine pain."
