 -2019 Annual Patient Conference Attendees

This year’s Annual Patient Conference theme, @Home, unites us virtually from around the world during this unprecedented time of Covid-19. The Myositis Association is excited to bring you our first Virtual International Annual Patient Conference scheduled for September 11-13, 2020.

Fueled by direct feedback of thousands of attendees from previous conferences and TMA events, this robust 3-day Virtual Patient Conference is designed to inspire and empower you with interactive sessions to encourage collaboration, socialization and education.

This conference will move beyond a series of lectures and provides you unique platforms for collaboration, socialization, education, and FUN!

Collaboration. Interact with our myositis community from around the world, as we work together to learn about new research and advancements for myositis diseases.

Socialization. Re-connect with other myositis patients, care partners, experts and industry partners in one of our interactive chat rooms or social events. Gain new insights, engage in thoughtful dialogue, share your experiences, ask questions, support one another or just catch up and learn about tips and tricks others have discovered for coping with myositis.

Education. Join our virtual workshops facilitated by leading global experts to learn about the latest myositis research, mental health support, and disease specific recommendations and engage in Q&A sessions and discussions most relevant to your needs. Participate in moderated discussions on areas of interest and optimize all opportunities to connect with our global myositis experts in this virtual environment.

We’re also going to have some fun! TMA is planning virtual social activities so we’ll have a few surprises leading to fun and probably more than a few laughs.

This is an event not to be missed offered to you @Home! You’ll build on what you already know, make new connections, gain skills and insights, and be a catalyst for further advancements in myositis. Join us as we all work together to improve the lives of those living with myositis and to ensure better patient outcomes, provide resources for patient support, and find hope for a better tomorrow together!
