The American Headache Society recently launched a program designed to identify and develop future leaders in 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.


The Emerging Leaders Program will take place Wednesday, November 14, 2018 at the Scottsdale Camelback Resort. Participants will learn about opportunities within the Society to serve on committees, participate in special projects and 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. Successful candidates will have their expenses paid for this meeting as well as complimentary registration to the Scottsdale Headache Symposium November 14-18, 2018.
