TMA’s Annual Patient Conference is scheduled for September 5-8, 2019 in Minneapolis, MN.  Through the generosity of several donors, we are able to offer conference scholarships for TMA members who might otherwise not be able to attend the Annual Patient Conference.

Financial aid, if granted, will cover a patient’s hotel room for 3 nights as well as conference registration for the patient and his/her spouse and/or care partner.  No travel expense will be provided. If the patient is to be accompanied by a care partner, the care partner is expected to stay in the same hotel room as the patient.  Since some meals are included in the conference registration, no additional meal expense will be covered.

Please email your completed 2019 Annual Patient Conference Scholarship form to TMA@myositis.org  by June 21, 2019.  Applicants will be notified by July 12, 2019 of funding decision.  Please note that priority for funding will be given to those who have not received a conference scholarship in the past and/or who have not previously attended a TMA Annual Patient Conference.
