The 2013 Annual Patient Conference marks a milestone event. In 1993, Betty Curry and a handful of patients formed an organization that is now celebrating its 20th anniversary as The Myositis Association. During these twenty years, there have been improvements in treatment for myositis, and the disease is now better understood. However, there is still a long way to go to achieve the ultimate goal - a cure.
TMA's Annual Patient Conference has also evolved during this time to include sessions focusing on alternative therapies, research developments, appropriate exercises, caregiver concerns, practical adaptations, maintaining fitness, and coping with the emotional challenges that accompany myositis.
Attendance at the Annual Conference now approaches 400 patients and their caregivers. If you have not yet attended TMA's Annual Patient Conference, you ought to consider being with us in Louisville this year. Not only will you hear from a broad range of health professionals, including TMA's 20-member Medical Advisory Board, but you will also gain valuable insights and knowledge from other patients who understand the challenges you are experiencing.
There will be activities to honor and recognize the growth of TMA during the past two decades, but more importantly, the Conference offers you a unique opportunity to talk to experts and learn how best to care for yourself.
Louisville is an appropriate setting for the 20th anniversary. Much like TMA, it is unique with a rich history and reverence for its past, yet very modern and innovative. Find time to take in some of the treasures of Louisville - Churchhill Downs, Louisville Slugger museum, Waterford Park, Muhammad Ali Center!
