Imagine hearing from 36 different migraine experts, from physicians and researchers to patient experts, all in one week. That’s what you get with the Migraine World Summit, a free online event that runs from Sunday, April 23 to Saturday, April 29.
The Migraine World Summit will address topics like:
- The best migraine treatments
- What do do when you feel like you’ve tried everything
- The most effective non-drug treatments
- Coping with anxiety, judgment, and social stigma of chronic migraine
- New treatments on the horizon
- Migraine myths (and what the truth really is)
- Hurdles that people with migraine face
Peter Goadsby, MD, David Dodick, MD, and Richard Lipton, MD, are just three of the renowned physicians interviewed for the summit. Joanna Kempner, PhD, (author of the fantastic Not Tonight: Migraine and the Politics of Gender and Health) will talk about changing perceptions of migraine. Vidyamala Burch, who book You Are Not Your Pain, I highlighted in last summer’s series on mindfulness-based stress reduction, will speak about using mindfulness for chronic pain. And I just finished my interview about creating good doctor-patient relationships. The full lineup of Migraine World Summit speakers is impressive.
New videos will be posted each day of the week and are available for free for 24 hours. You can purchase permanent access to the videos (and get audio-only recordings and transcripts) for $79 until April 22 ($99 after that date). This is an affiliate program, so the referrer gets a portion of that fee. I’ll donate whatever I earn to the American Migraine Foundation.

I had chronic migraines for 16 years. It was finally cured by hydrochlorothiazide 12.5 mg., propranolol ER 125 mg., doxepin 75mg., Gralise 1800 mg., and Depakote ER 1000 mg. All medication is taken at bedtime. I occasionally have to take a Tylenol or two for a tension headache that doesn’t last more than 30 minutes. Side effects are gynecomastia, erectile dysfunction and total anorgasmia.
