Update: Virtual sessions will launch November 21, 2020

Following careful consideration, the American Headache Society (AHS) leadership has made the difficult yet necessary decision to cancel the in-person portion of the AHS Scottsdale Headache Symposium® originally scheduled for November 19 – 22, 2020, in Scottsdale, AZ. The meeting will now be a virtual event launching November 21, 2020. Please save the date and view our FAQ page for additional details.

The Scottsdale Headache Symposium® is designed for general practitioners, internists, pediatricians, neurologists, anesthesiologists, dentists, physical therapists, psychologists, psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, and other health professionals who treat headache. The Symposium provides practical, clinical, evidence-based information on the diagnosis, management and treatment of headache patients.
