AHS Emerging Leaders Program – Call for Applications

The American Headache Society is launching 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.

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.
