Among myasthenia gravis patients, concerns about activity vary as much as MG symptoms. Should I exercise? Can I regain my balance? Can I get back to endurance sports? Can I get pregnant? How does MG affect my monthly cycle, or menopause? What about my performance – at work, at the gym, or even in the bedroom?
On October 22, NorthShore University Health System experts David Randall, DO, (neurologist and Assistant Clinical Professor for the University of Chicago), and neurologic physical therapists Jennifer Ford and Angela Mackowiak will address these issues.
Event is free, includes lunch. A donation of $25 per person (or amount of your choice) would help offset costs.
