Migraine Trust International Symposium Patient Day

About the event

Join us for our annual patient event following our International Symposium which brings together headache and migraine experts and scientists from all over the world.

Our events provide information and support to help you better understand and manage your migraine.

Living with migraine can be isolating and our events bring together people of all ages and backgrounds to share experiences and meet others who live with the condition.

Whether you’ve just been diagnosed with migraine, or have been living with it for most of your life, these events are for you.

We look forward to spending this day with you in an understanding and like-minded community and we can’t wait to see you there.
