A Day of Remembrance

May 20, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

Myositis in Focus: A Day of Remembrance

Myositis In Focus: A Day of Remembrance

Honoring and Remembering those we have lost

Join us for “A Day of Remembrance” as we honor and remember those we have lost to myositis.

This live streaming YouTube event is in participation with sponsors committed to myositis research, myositis patient care, and to the work we do on behalf of the myositis community.

In previous years, MSU has asked the community to observe a moment of silence; this year in addition to a private moment of silence, we are doing more to ensure we never forget those who fought so hard.

While honoring their memory and expressing the sadness of these losses – losses that mean a great deal to our community – we can help others realize the urgent need for continued education at all levels, new and effective therapies, rare disease patients to participate in clinical trials, and better understanding and increased awareness; key in helping to fund nonprofit work and myositis research.

When: Sunday, May 20, 2018, 2PM EDT (1PM Central, 12PM Mountain, 11AM Pacific)

Where: Live Streaming YouTube Video Event on the MSU YouTube page: A little before the start time, visit Youtube.com/understandingmyositisorganization/live

How to Attend: Visit our YouTube Live page a little before the start time of 2 PM EDT on May 20, 2018.
