On December 14, 2018, HealthyWomen hosted a Science, Technology and Innovation Roundtable in Baltimore, MD to discuss Migraine Therapies in Women. Participants addressed women’s experience with current migraine treatments and explored the availability and efficacy of noninvasive nondrug treatments. They reviewed barriers to the use of nondrug treatments from the perspective of both patients and health care providers and identified opportunities to overcome these barriers. The roundtable participants represented a variety of interests and experience related to migraine and included neurologists, nurse practitioners, a psychologist, a sleep specialist, and several women with migraine disease who shared insights into their migraine journeys. A list of participant names and affiliations is provided towards the end of this report.
