Virtual Experience - November 5-9, 2020
Registration is Now Closed
The RetreatMigraine planning team has made the difficult decision to replace our in-person event with a virtual conference. This event will take place November 5-9, 2020.
The health of the migraine community is our top priority. The continued spread of Covid-19 has prompted health leaders to require suspension of large public gatherings through the end of the year. As an organization committed to improving public health, we feel it is our responsibility to follow recommended national, state and local guidelines.
An agenda for the virtual meeting will be available soon. We are very excited to gather online and further our goals of connecting, empowering, and educating.
If you are a registered attendee, please see your email for further details.
We are cautiously optimistic that we will be able to meet in person next year. With that in mind, we have secured the same amazing venue at which we hoped to meet you all this year. RetreatMigraine 2021 will be at the Crowne Plaza Redondo Beach October 15-17, 2021. Keep your fingers crossed that things improve and we can come together to lift each other in support.
Other Great Opportunities
While we cannot get together in person, there are a lot of exciting ways to stay connected to our community. We encourage all of you to continue your migraine journey by participating in events hosted by CHAMP participants:
The Association of Migraine Disorders is hosting The Migraine Symposium this fall. This is a free one-day educational and celebratory event that expands our understanding of migraine with the help of presentations by more than 35 experts and advocates from around the country.
Miles for Migraine has an offering nearly every single day. They offer support groups, virtual run/walk relax events to raise awareness and funds for research, and virtual education days for adolescents and adults. Find your community with Miles for Migraine.
The National Headache Foundation's 50th Anniversary Gala is an excellent opportunity to socialize and help raise funds to support their mission.
Stay tuned for RetreatMigraine updates in the coming days, weeks and months. If you have any questions or concerns, email Retreat Director Eileen Brewer at email@example.com. We welcome communication, but please be patient as we are experiencing a high volume of emails at this time. We are responding as quickly as we can.
