In 2019 we’ve had millions of people visit our websites and over 115,000 people from over 154 countries participate at the Migraine World Summit. Our World Health Education Foundation (WHEF) In-Person Event included celebrities with migraine and a panel of experts in front of a live audience of 400 affected by migraine.

We heard in emails, video messages, and social media comments that these events have opened up a world of hope and turned lives around.

This has been made possible only by the goodwill of our world-leading experts and volunteers who generously shared their knowledge, time and expertise. We owe a big thank you to everyone who was involved.

Now you have the opportunity to help make a difference for people with migraine. On behalf of the World Health Education Foundation, and in partnership with the Migraine World Summit, we are looking for a few capable and generous volunteers to join the team to help provide education and support to our global audience.

These roles are flexible and purpose-driven. You’re also likely to pick up new skills, friends, and ideas for better health. This could also be a great stepping stone if you’re looking to get back into the workforce.
