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’s free Community Health Fairs are designed to help you or your loved one navigate MG. Hear from and 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…

  • Learn from MG experts near you about treatment options and strategies for managing MG. 

  • Ask MG patients, support group leaders, and medical experts your questions. 

  • Find information and educational materials. 

  • Connect with local businesses that specialize in patient and caregiver needs. 

  • Learn more about MG research and treatment developments from experts and corporate industry leaders. 

  • Try out the “MG Experience” to understand the challenges of living with MG if you’re a caregiver, family member, or friend. 

  • Connect to share stories and gain support. 

Each event includes educational presentations led by MG experts, followed by lunch and a chance to visit exhibitors at your own pace. There is plenty of seating throughout if you need to take a rest. 

 

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.
