Myositis Program

Myositis Support and Education Program

The Myositis support group was founded in 1997 in response to patients’ expressed desire to meet other people with this rare chronic disease. Presentations by Myositis care experts are followed by informal discussion.

The Group meets every 2nd Wednesday evening of each month from 6:00-8:00pm.
