On September 25, 2006, the US House of Representatives approved the goals and ideals of a “National Myositis Awareness Day” to be observed on September 21. The proclamation endorsing National Myositis Awareness Day capped a years-long effort by The Myositis Association. Today, many states and localities across the country recognize and celebrate the day with fundraising events, educational sessions, and honoring people affected by myositis, their caregivers, and families.
