Migraine Matters: Beyond Burden to Value

The Society for Women’s Health Research held an interdisciplinary roundtable discussion on sex and gender differences in migraine on October 2, 2017, followed by a public panel discussion, the first of its kind at SWHR. The roundtable consisted of 13 experts from a wide variety of backgrounds, including basic scientists, clinicians, behavioral scientists, and patient advocates. The public panel was composed of a moderator and four panelists who spoke about migraine from their perspectives as patient advocates, health care providers, sociologists, and health policy leaders.

Goals: Explore the current state of the science regarding the role of sex and gender differences in migraine and establish next steps to address remaining gaps in knowledge.
