Headache and Migraine Patient Conference June 29!

The second annual headache and migraine patient conference will be June 29, 2014 in Los Angeles. Last year’s conference was really informative and, while my migraine was too severe for me to be social, I still learned a ton.

Multiple sessions will be held concurrently, so you can choose what topics you want to learn about, including managing cluster headache, brain changes during migraine, sex differences in migraine treatment, and complementary and alternative therapies. There will also be a session for loved ones to talk about the challenges they face as caregivers. Some top headache specialists will be presenting, including Dr. Andrew Charles (UCLA), Dr. Rob Cowan (Stanford) and Dr. Peter Goadsby (UCSF).

Get details and register. Scholarships of up to $500 will be offered for travel expenses. The scholarship application deadline is Friday, May 30. Help for Headaches has scholarship details.

I’m still not sure if I’ll make it this year, but leave a comment if you’re going and we can be sure to meet up if I do!

    For people who cannot go to the conference:
    Are some of the presentations and discussion transcripts shared?
    Are there any videos on YouTube or Vimeo? Or live streaming?
