Scientific Meetings

Scientific Session

Annual meeting that provides medical professionals the opportunity to learn from colleagues about current, pre-publication research in the field of myasthenia gravis. The session is geared towards medical professionals, but is open to the public. The meeting is held in conjunction with the annual meeting of similar professional societies of physicians who focus on neuromuscular medicine.


2020 Virtual Scientific Session

The 2020 Scientific Session took place online, virtually on Saturday, October 3, 2020. Medical professionals and clinicians presented their latest findings, clinical research, progress, and posters on discoveries that could lead to better treatments and a cure for myasthenia. We were excited that Dr. Henry Kaminski from MGNet was our keynote speaker this year.

Our National Conference is an annual educational opportunity around myasthenia gravis.  Over 200 participants attend, representing people with MG, family, and health professionals.  The National Conference program features MG experts, community leaders and health professionals. The conference is a great opportunity to meet others in the MG Community and make friends from across the country.  Some sessions are taped, so if you have not been able to attend you can still access some of this great information.
