The 2020 Virtual Migraine Symposium

October 3, 2020

Click Here to Register for The 2020 Virtual Migraine Symposium

Many medical professionals are unaware of the links between migraine and other comorbid conditions. We need to look at  migraine from a full-body perspective, as it often impacts other areas of the body than what it is typically associated with. Physicians need to have more knowledge on migraine comorbidities and how to approach care when a patient is experiencing comorbid conditions. Additionally, migraine presents differently in children than adults, therefore, it often goes undiagnosed or misdiagnosed. This Symposium brings together experts from several medical specialties to discuss new frontiers in migraine clinical and research advances - both in diagnosis and treatment.  

Target Audience

Physicians practicing in primary care, pediatrics, psychiatry, anesthesiology, emergency medicine, family medicine, gastroenterology, neurology, OB/GYN and general medicine in addition to physician specialists, physician assistants, pharmacists, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, residents, fellows medical students and other allied members of the healthcare team in the care of patients suffering from migraine.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Identify how migraine manifests in children which will lead to proper diagnosis and more accurate treatment. 
  • View migraine from a full-body perspective
  • Identify the interplay between migraine and other comorbid conditions such as mood disorders and gastrointestinal disorders. 
  • Assess traumatic brain injury and how it may lead to migraine
