The Migraine Symposium

Providence, RI US
March 30, 2019

Migraine is a highly complex disease that impacts more than 39 million people in the U.S. We know that up to half of migraine sufferers have not been diagnosed properly and many are not receiving optimal treatment. This symposium features three panel discussions that include prominent headache and migraine clinicians, and researchers from around the country. Our goals are to increase medical providers’ knowledge and ability to effectively diagnose and treat migraine disease and to be knowledgeable about the wide variety of symptoms. 

Target Audience

Physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and nurses, practicing in primary care, family practice, internal medicine, and other interested medical providers.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of the symposium, participants should be able to:

  • Accurately diagnose and manage vestibular migraine.
  • Accurately diagnose and manage hormone-related migraine.
  • Know why they are often confused by the presentation of sinus headache
