Is vestibular migraine covered?

In 2019 Michael T. Teixido, MD discussed vestibular migraine in his interview entitled ‘Understanding Balance, Vertigo and Dizziness’ on Day 3 of the 2019 Migraine World Summit.

In 2018 year Dr. Frederick Godley (MD, FACS) discusses the vestibular system this year. He is an otolaryngologist (or ENT doctor) and President of the Association of Migraine Disorders. To preview his talk click here.

In 2017 Dr. David Dodick also discussed Vestibular migraine in detail including treatments for V.M. He is the immediate past president of the International Headache Society and Director of Headache Program at the Mayo Clinic. If you missed his session you can preview the interview here.

Is hemiplegic migraine covered?

In 2019 Day 8 we spoke with migraine patient advocate, Nim Lalvani, who has hemiplegic migraine.

In 2018 several of our speakers reference hemiplegic migraine in their talks including Allan Purdy MD, Juliana VanderPluym MD, Robert Cowan MD, and Teri Robert.

However, in 2017 Dr. David Dodick discussed Hemiplegic migraine in detail. He is a past president of the International Headache Society and Director of Headache Program at the Mayo Clinic. He is an extremely experienced headache specialist. If you missed his popular session you can preview the interview here.

When will the schedule for the 2020 Migraine World Summit be released?

The schedule page for 2020 speakers and topics is planned to be released by February 4. Check the schedule page for details.

Why are the interviews available only for 24 hours?

You will have 24 hours to listen to each day’s program, no matter your time zone. After 24 hours they will be replaced by the following day’s speakers.

This is so that as much content as possible can be included in the Summit while not exhausting server capacity, slowing speed or having to limit volumes during the week.

Everyone should have the opportunity to view these experts at no charge. That’s also why we’ve donated over $20,000 USD to charities, foundations and migraine groups who are funding research and support for migraine patients.

The Migraine World Summit has never made a profit and does not seek donations. Our goal is to reduce the global burden of migraine. This requires a sustained effort over time.
