The annual MGFA National Patient Conference is the largest and most complete gathering of the MG Community. Every year, attendees include amazing and resilient MG patients, generous caregivers, and MG experts including researchers, clinicians, and medical professionals. The conference features MG research information and updates, informative discussions with patients and community members in the MG space, news about MG treatments and discoveries, and many exciting educational topics to help you and your family better manage your MG journey.

 

The MGFA National Patient Conference will take place April 28-30, 2024, at the beautiful Westin Tampa Waterside in Tampa, Florida.

 

We are excited to share that there is no registration fee for patients and caregivers! We hope this will help make the conference more accessible to the MG Community. We’re grateful to our generous partners for making this possible.

 

We also offer a virtual option for those who do not wish to or cannot travel. This year, the virtual attendees will gather in the MGFA Online Community. Watch sessions, ask questions, and chat with other virtual attendees. Make sure you are a member of the Online Community before the conference.

 

When you register, please choose either the in-person or virtual option, not both. Be sure to include names of all registered guests.
