The American Headache Society’s Emerging Leaders Program is designed to identify and develop future leaders within the Society. We are encouraging young medical professionals to enter and thrive not only in the field of headache medicine, but within the American Headache Society.

ABOUT THE EMERGING LEADERS PROGRAM

Participants will learn about opportunities within the Society to serve on committees, participate in special projects and American Migraine Foundation activities. They will engage with mentors who are leaders in the society and headache medicine, interact with others and lay the groundwork for long-lasting and fulfilling relationships, networking opportunities and collaborations.
