Quarterly (Saturdays)

At the MGA, we host a variety of events that not only bring people with MG together, but offer opportunities for friends, family, and other people in surrounding areas to support patients, learn about myasthenia gravis, and build communities.


Below is a list of some of our featured events! Click the button below to learn more about past events and upcoming events that you can participate in.


Our staff is committed to engaging with MG patients, their families, and their care teams every day at the MGA. Whether someone has been recently diagnosed with MG or has been managing this autoimmune disorder for the majority of their life, our team work diligently to ensure people with myasthenia gravis are supported.  In clinic, we take a collaborative approach, working directly with the neurology teams and patients to promote comprehensive care. Ultimately, the role of the MGA is to serve as another tool in an MG patient's toolbox, encouraging patients to approach their MG holistically and assist in the management of living with this chronic disease.
