Migraine World Summit 2020
The World Migraine Summit 2020 is returning for a replay. Due to the hardships that COVID-19 provided, the people at World Migraine Summit decided to re-run this year’s summit again for a free viewing each day. During the June replay, there will be both live and recorded webinars with the event hosts plus other helpful resources.
You have the option to purchase unlimited on-demand access* to the Migraine World Summit 2020. (*affiliate link) If you purchase, it will be delivered in a boxed set so you can watch the sessions at your own pace, or share them with family. Free interview availability is limited to encourage a small percentage of people to purchase a copy of the Migraine World Summit, which helps keep the event running each year.
Learn from 30 of the world’s best migraine headache experts. The Replay will run from June 10-19th. You can access the interviews directly on the website. It will start later today (Tuesday, June 9, 2020) at 6:00 pm ET. Register for FREE and you will have 24 hours to listen to each day’s interviews. After 24 hours you will receive another link to view the next day’s sessions.
- A significant proportion of people have found that isolation has led to an increase in migraine frequency or severity. Many households have come under financial stress or hardship with pay cuts and jobs furloughed or lost entirely. Access to health or emergency services and medications has also been affected. In many respects, those with migraine may be disproportionately impacted by the additional burden brought on by the pandemic.

Recently I was contacted by the host of the Migraine World Summit 2016. It sounds like a great opportunity to get questions answered, a chance to learn about migraines, and a way to participate in the migraine community from the comfort of your home. Many of us have trouble traveling, can’t sit in fluorescent conference rooms, or have the funds to participate. If this is your case, the good news is….it’s FREE and from HOME!

The doctor of Axon Optics will also be a doctor participating. If you don’t know who Axon Optics is, they are migraine glasses to help with photophobia and light sensitivity!

It will feature interviews with Migraine Research Foundation experts.
World’s First Migraine Conference
Set to Relieve Pain Experienced by Millions
Over 30 doctors, professors, and specialists have gathered from world-leading institutions to help answer some of the most difficult questions for patients in desperate need of relief. Specialists require referrals, patients may incur significant costs and there can be waiting lists when treating migraines. The Migraine World Summit is a great opportunity to jump the line and get into the room with doctors to hear the latest best practice and approaches being used by some of the best in migraine.
Carl Cincinnato, the host of the Migraine World Summit, sees how migraine can cripple an individual over time:
“Migraines can be devastating to someone’s quality of life. It can affect not only their physical well-being, but their relationships, family life, and in severe cases their ability to keep a job and have a career. There is still a stigma associated with migraine. Many people feel guilty or ashamed to admit they have a migraine. Migraines can also lead to depression and anxiety as many struggle with isolation, lack of progress, and loss of hope. Research shows a direct link between the frequency of migraine and a person’s quality of life.”
- Migraines are more common than diabetes, epilepsy, and asthma combined. [i]
- There are 956,000 thousand migraine attacks every day in the USA[ii] with around 37 million affected.
- Migraines were recently found to be the 6th highest cause of disability worldwide in terms of years lost to disability [iii]
- A severe migraine can be as disabling as quadriplegia or active psychosis.[iv]
- Despite the prevalence of migraine, it remains underdiagnosed and under-treated with less than 50% of patients consulting a physician.[v]
- For those who do seek help, finding the right doctor can be difficult. Just 4 hours are committed to headaches disorders in undergraduate medical training worldwide.[vi]
- The US is one of the few places where there are subspecialty certifications for headache medicine, yet there is only one headache specialist for every 85,000 patients.[vii] This shortage is consistent worldwide.
