We continue to be extremely grateful for your participation in Diamond Headache Clinic Research and Educational Foundation’s 2020 educational programs. As of April 20, 2020, we have recently made a very difficult, but we feel appropriate, decision.   Headache Update 2020, which was to be held at Disney World’s Grand Floridian from July 16-19, 2020 is cancelled.  We do not feel that we can encourage a mass get together at this point during the COVID-19 outbreak, in fact Walt Disney World currently cannot guarantee us that they will even be operational on the scheduled dates for the conference. 

We are currently working to develop a virtual event, permanent virtual content, and other possibilities. There should also be a venue for outside educational symposia.  

We will be refunding your registration fees via the same method you used to pay for them. We will be contacting you to invite you to participate in virtual activities as well as other educational programs. If you have logistical questions please contact Jacquelyn Fernandez at jfernandez@diamondheadache.com.  

Course Schedule:

Virtual Course Agenda is still in the works. A final agenda will be posted as soon as it is available. Check out last year's agenda for Headache Update 2019, available here.
