Happy Myositis Awareness Month! The Myositis Association (TMA) has declared the month of May as Myositis Awareness Month. This is the time when TMA is asking members of all the KIT (Support) Groups to enhance myositis awareness by talking to our families, coworkers and friends (including Facebook friends and Twitter followers) about myositis; and to hold special events and meetings.
To celebrate this month, we are pleased to announce that Dr. Namita Goyal will be the speaker at our next meeting, which will be on Saturday, May 20, 2017. Dr Goyal is an Associate Clinical Professor of Neurology at the University of California at Irvine, specializes in neuromuscular medicine and is a member of TMA’s Medical Advisory Board. She will be sharing with us information about some of the current research on myositis treatments and then opening the rest of the meeting for questions from our KIT Group members.
