Support Groups

Talk to others who understand

Would you like to talk with others who know what it’s like to live with myasthenia gravis? Attend a support group session, and learn how others find out about the disease, manage symptoms, and engage with their doctors. Patients and caregivers are always welcome. Dates for 2022 are listed here. 

Note that a Spanish-language MG group meets online each month, and the Conquer MG Men’s MG Group meets in March.
