The World Health Organization (WHO) ranked migraine as one of the ten most disabling illnesses and the third most common medical disorder on the planet. Migraine affects one in eight American adults. Prevalence peaks during prime productive years, between the ages of 25 and 55, at a time when work and family responsibilities are most significant. Although the prevalence of migraine far surpasses that of diabetes, it rarely makes the list of chronic conditions that get an employer’s attention because migraines, on the surface, appear inexpensive to treat. However, the annual direct and indirect costs are significant.

Attend this webinar to gain a better understanding of migraine-related workplace issues and best practices around migraine management from leading employers. Hear from these speakers about how employers can support the migraineur in the workplace:

  • Wayne Burton, MD, Former Global Corporate Medical Director, American Express
  • Gaye Fortner, President & CEO, HealthCare21
  • Tom Sondergeld Vice President, Global Benefits, HRIS & Mobility, Walgreens Boots Alliance
