This discussion will highlight Felicia Moores’ story of her myositis diagnosis and progression, her challenges and barriers, and the impact pulmonary rehab had on her symptoms, exercise tolerance, and quality of life.

Felicia Moore, a mother of two and grandmother of two who is living with antisynthetase syndrome with polymyositis and interstitial lung disease, and Kim Smith, MA, RCEP, PYT, Clinical Exercise Physiologist at Vidant Medical Center, have an open and vulnerable discussion, and one of hope through it all.

We believe by pairing patients and healthcare providers for discussions like these, we can all learn more, from experiences and science.
