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 meeting, and learn how others manage symptoms, find resources and engage with their doctors. Patients and caregivers are always welcome. Dates for virtual and in-person meetings for 2023 are listed here.
