Join us for Myositis Reads!
Join us on Clubhouse for Myositis Reads, a book club for those living with myositis, and care partners, hosted by Mary Oltmans and Kambiz (Kam) Roghanchi. Each month we will read a different book. We will ask for ideas for future reads and have a group vote with those who participate. This is an opportunity to get together with others impacted by myositis to have a little fun and great discussions not centered on our disease.
TIPS to find the book: Call your local library to see if they have the book, used book websites have great prices, and we will talk about reading buddies if that’s something needed!

Using Clubhouse on your computer/laptop
There is third-party software, Clubdeck, that you can download and install on your computer to use Clubhouse. Clubdeck is available for Windows and Mac OS. You can only be logged in on one device, however. So if you use Clubdeck, you won’t be able to have Clubhouse on your device running at the same time. Check out Clubdeck here.
