Welcome to the Northern California KIT (Keep In Touch) Support Group.

The Northern California KIT is a welcoming and active support group. We host meetings twice a year for those with dermatomyositis (DM), polymyositis (PM) and inclusion-body myositis (IBM) in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Our meetings bring together myositis patients and their caregivers to provide an opportunity for those with similar diagnoses to share personal concerns, advice, and experiences. Periodically, speakers will attend our meetings to address certain topics pertaining to myositis and maintaining a healthy and informed lifestyle. KIT meetings bring together positively-spirited individuals who support one another and provide reassurance that you are not alone—there are others living with this same disease. Many have found it very satisfying to trade their stories of myositis with others. Please join us and find out what else we do!
