IHS Regional Headache Conference

In 2022 for the first time IHS has held a Regional Headache Conference (RHC). The Conference was held in Buenos Aires, Argentina, from 29 September to 1 October 2022.

The conference took place at the Auditórium Universidad Torcuato Di Tella, a unique opportunity for neurologists and researchers from the wider Latin America region to come together to discuss headache medicine and science with international headache opinion leaders.

Key international speakers included IHS President Cristina Tassorelli, IHS President-elect Rami Burstein, IHS Honorary Secretary Patricia Pozo-Rosich, IHS Past-President Messoud Ashina and members of the IHS Board and Committees. Local and regional headache specialists also brought their expertise to the conference to deliver a programme that not only included a variety of scientific sessions and courses covering international scientific data and practices, but also sessions based on local needs, and practical courses for young delegates to guide them in their future careers.

The conference enabled neurologists and researchers to meet together with the possibility to

  • communicate and discuss recent advances
  • disseminate headache science and headache medicine
  • encourage interest and research in headache field.

IHS thanks Maria Teresa Goicochea, IHS Board member from Buenos Aires, who has organised the conference with the assistance of Agustina Cappa from Fleni. And also Marco Lisicki and Jan Hoffmann, the Scientific Programme Chairs, who developed an excellent varied programme.
