Migraine training for your workplace

Migraine is most common among adults of working age and effects 1 in 7 of the population. It can impact working life but this can be significantly reduced if people with migraine are supported at work.

We deliver information and support sessions on migraine for employees, HR and leadership teams. We will work with you to find the best way to support your employees with migraine to stay in work.
