Join Our Team

At the 2024 Migraine World Summit, we had more than 100,000 participants from more than 100 countries listen to 32 world-leading experts.

We heard in emails, video messages, and social media comments that this event opened up a world of hope and turned lives around.

This has been made possible only by the goodwill of our world-leading experts and volunteers who have generously shared their knowledge, time, and expertise. Thank you to everyone who was involved!

Now there is an opportunity for you to become directly involved with this life-changing work. We are looking for a few capable and generous volunteers to join the Migraine World Summit team that brings these experts to the world.

The roles are flexible and purpose-driven. If you join our team, you're likely to pick up new skills, friends, and ideas for better health along the way. This could also be a great stepping stone if you're looking to get back into the workforce. It can also be another meaningful way to move forward on your migraine journey.
