Dear Colleague,

We are excited to invite you to a new experience in learning! Please join us in an engaging and highly interactive educational multimedia gallery on Saturday evening, November 18, 2017.

My co-presenters, Dr. Richard Lipton and Dr. Andrew Charles, will join me to answer any questions you may have as you navigate through the four poster gallery areas. The gallery has been created to allow you the opportunity to experience the delivery of information through interactive multimedia technology shared with you both visually and through interactivity on an iPad device provided to you upon arrival. The display allows you to move at your own pace through the educational experience, and covers today’s clinical environment and the challenges associated with the recognition and management of episodic and chronic migraine, and with effective preventive treatment and prophylaxis of these headache disorders.

Following your interactive gallery experience, we invite you to take a seat and hear additional information presented by myself, Dr. Lipton, and Dr. Charles. Together we will highlight the challenges currently encountered by patients and clinicians when implementing preventive treatment for migraine, and share with you the promising new therapies on the horizon and how they compare with currently available therapies. Presentations will include insights and understanding about how these new therapies work, the unique features of the CGRP monoclonal antibodies, how these four new agents have performed in clinical trials, and, most importantly, how they may impact practice.

Our session will conclude with what we anticipate will be a lively exchange between the panel and the audience, so I encourage you to join in on this discussion.

I look forward to seeing you there.
