What To Expect When You Come to the Myositis Support Group
- Meetings are generally held on the second Tuesday of each month at Hospital for Special Surgery.
- During the first hour, speakers with expertise in areas that affect people with myositis are invited to present to the group on such topics as physical therapy, managing medications, managing stress and treatments and medications for myositis.
- During the second hour, there is an open discussion where members share thoughts and feelings about the topic and other related concerns about living with myositis.
