Community Health Fairs



Do you have questions about your MG? Curious about the latest resources, medical advances, and wellness options available to patients? Join us at a Community Health Fair!


MGFA Community Health Fairs are designed to help you or your loved one navigate MG. Talk with medical professionals, access educational and wellness resources, and meet others in the MG community. Connect with each other, share stories and guidance, and learn more about managing this disease.


At MGFA Community Health Fairs, you can…

  • Interact with MG patients and medical experts to get your questions answered.
  • Find information and educational materials.
  • Connect with local businesses that cater to MG patients and specialize in their needs.
  • Learn more about MG research and treatment developments from MG experts and corporate industry leaders.
  • Join the “MG Experience” to learn how to share the challenges of living with MG with others.
  • Simply get together, in person, to share stories and gain support.

Health fairs are free to attend. You’ll find chairs and resting areas throughout the event. Please join us for Community Connect during the last hour of each event. Enjoy refreshments and snacks while you socialize with other patients and caregivers in the MG Community.


Your support network of family and friends is welcome, including children (look for the children’s activity corner at the fair). Please register each attendee individually.


We look forward to seeing you at a fair in your area! If you have questions, feel free to contact the listed Volunteer Leads for each event below or email Tasha Duncan
