Highlights from the 2018 Migraine World Summit        Co-Hosts Paula K. Dumas and Carl Cincinnato

What time is each session per day?

The Summit runs from April 18 – 26 and starts each day at 9am Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) New York, USA. Use this free tool to convert EDT time into your own time zone.

Each day’s talks will be available for 24 hours. You may watch the day’s sessions in any order you wish for those 24 hours until the next day’s sessions begin.  

Is this the final schedule?

There may be slight adjustments to the current schedule. Please check this schedule page regularly to keep up to date with any changes that may occur before the event.

Why aren't all the talks available the whole week?

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 bandwidth restrictions, 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 $15,000 USD to charities, foundations and migraine groups who are working towards more research and support for migraine patients.

Registration is Required to Attend The Summit Free
