MSU's Myositis Awareness Month

High Fives from the Heart: #MyositisLIFE in a Pandemic World

Myositis Support and Understanding is turning 5 in 2020! While the original theme was being discussed and formulated, the world seemingly turned upside down with the appearance and rapid worldwide spread of the novel Coronavirus and the resulting disease, COVID-19. MSU volunteers quickly shifted focus to ensure we are fully support the Myositis community during this pandemic through education, online and video support, and patient financial assistance.  

We move forward into a slightly scaled back May Awareness Month, mindful of the enormous impact the pandemic has and will continue to have on Myositis patients and caregivers.

Some of our Myositis Awareness Month events will now be held in September. Historically, Myositis Awareness Day is September 21st of each year, however, we have celebrated the month of May for the past 2-3 years. This year, we will use both May and September with our theme, “High Fives from the Heart” as MSU turns 5-years-old and we continue our focus of empowering the myositis community.Learn more »
