MG Support Groups

Support groups associated with Conquer MG can be found in Illinois, Indiana, and Iowa. They are run by experienced leaders who also live with myasthenia gravis. Support group meetings help you learn about managing the disease through information that is presented and sharing experiences with other patients and family members.
