May is National Myositis Awareness Month! Help educate the public and healthcare community about myositis.

Why Do We Need Awareness?

On average it takes more than three-and-a-half years and five doctors to receive a correct autoimmune disease diagnosis. Myositis patients—including frantic parents of drastically weakened children—find that a great deal of damage is done during this wait. Raising awareness of myositis, its symptoms, and treatments will help these patients and families. Please join TMA in raising awareness of myositis by informing friends and the public about myositis. We have gathered resources and information to help you with this effort.
