Our Managing Your Migraine event in Cardiff, in partnership with the British Association for the Study of Headache, is designed to support people living with migraine and those with an interest in learning more about the condition.

The programme for the day will include presentations from clinicians who will be talking about issues specific to migraine treatment and how to live with the condition. You will also hear about The Migraine Trust and our services and there will be opportunities to talk with other people living with migraine.

The programme includes a session on managing migraine in children and Gus Baldwin, our new chief executive, will be discussing our consultation on the future direction of the charity.
