Additional Resources

MGFA hosted a Wellness Series webinar titled: "MG and Physical Therapy" on August 19, 2021. Due to the high number of attendees and depth of many excellent questions from the MG Community, the presenter, Bryan Hill, was not able to respond to, or address every question, in the Q&A section at the end of the webinar. In response, MGFA has posted a list of all remaining questions including Mr. Hill’s responses. Click or tap on the button below to access the list.
