What MWS attendees are saying...


“I cannot thank you enough for putting together such a great summit! I learned in those 9 days more than I have ever learned from my own neurologist.

Can’t wait for the next one!!”

Adele Trott
"This has been so informative. I'm 76 and have had migraine since I was 16 so I have pretty much tried everything. Watching this has given me hope. "
