About the Event

Celebrities join world-leading experts for Opening Night at Migraine World Summit’s first-ever live event. Actress Kristin Chenoweth and NFL Hall of Famer Terrell Davis partner with the Migraine World Summit to spark a movement to end the stigma around migraine.

MWSLive will kick-off the annual 8-day virtual summit with a live simulcast event. It will be held at UCLA on March 19, 2019 from 4:00-8:00pm in front of a live audience of over 500 people with migraine, the largest gathering of people with migraine.

Award-winning performer Kristin Chenoweth will reveal details of her almost career-ending personal struggle with migraine attacks. Chenoweth will be joined by SuperBowl MVP Terrell Davis, who will share his own lifelong migraine battle. Three world-leading migraine experts from UCLA, University of Vermont and Albert Einstein College of Medicine will share valuable insights and answer questions from the live audience.

 

Migraine World Summit Live will be held at UCLA Luskin Conference Center on the beautiful UCLA campus.

Self-service parking for Luskin Conference Center (LCC) visitors is available close to LCC. We will cover the cost of your parking and you will need to present your ticket to the UCLA parking attendant upon arrival at the P8 Lot, Level 3 or 4.
