At the 2021 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 these events have 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. We owe a big thank you to everyone who was involved.
Now you have the opportunity to get involved in this life-changing work to help make a difference for people with migraine. On behalf of the Migraine World Summit and WHEF, we are looking for a few capable and generous volunteers to join the team to help provide education and support to our global audience.
