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).
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!
