The Migraine World Summit
36 migraine experts—including world-renowned doctors, researchers, and patient advocates—will be sharing their wisdom at the Migraine World Summit, a free online event that’s happening this week.
Topics that speakers will address include:
- The best migraine treatments
- New treatments that are coming available
- Minimizing migraine’s impact on family and romantic relationships
- Coping techniques work for managing the anxiety, judgment, and stigma of migraine
- The connection between neck pain and migraine
- Diet and migraine

- Safe migraine treatments for kids and teenagers
The summit will be presented in a series of videos, with six new videos available starting at 9 a.m. Eastern each day. You can watch the videos for free any time before 9 a.m. the next day. You can purchase permanent access to the videos.
Headache specialists speaking at the summit include Peter Goadsby, MD, David Dodick, MD, and Richard Lipton, MD. Joanna Kempner, PhD, who is author of Not Tonight Dear and a Migraine.com contributor, will talk about stigma and how to change perceptions about migraine. Patient advocate Kerrie Smyres will be representing Migraine.com in her talk about how to get the most out of your relationship with your doctor.
“My talk covers things like the types of doctors that people with migraine are most satisfied with, why the idea of partnering with your doctor might be selling patients short, and important questions to ask a new doctor,” Kerrie said. “I’m eager to watch the interviews from the experts participating in the summit. The speakers represent leaders in the field who most patients wouldn’t normally have access to—there’s guaranteed to be valuable information for everyone with migraine.”
