Glasgow Set to Host Migraine Congress

In 2008 London became the first city to host the European Headache and Migraine Trust International Congress (EHMTIC). Since then further congresses were held, one every two years, in Nice (2010), London (2012), and Copenhagen (2014). In 2016 it’s Glasgow’s turn.

Glasgow Set to Host Migraine Congress

The event has been organised jointly by The European Headache Federation and The Migraine Trust. Thanks to their work, from the 15th-18th September the world’s leading experts in migraine and headache research will gather to share and discuss the latest developments in treatments and preventative actions. The aim of the congress is to help people everywhere develop a better understanding of migraine, and to improve the lives of sufferers through the sharing and discussing of ideas surrounding the subject.  

A few of the events on this year’s programme include; sessions on headaches in adolescents and children, a lecture by Jes Olesen (a clinical professor at the University of Copenhagen), and several specialised teaching courses. For members of the public wishing to be a part of the congress there is also a public programme for events taking place on the 18th.  More information on the congress can be found at their website:

It will be interesting to see what positive results the congress yields.
