Sharing your journey

TMA Annual Patient Conference 2015

Emily Filmore and Jerry Williams, Board members of MSU, along with Dr. Pat Vitacco, lead a session titled “Sharing your journey” at the 2015 Myositis Association Annual Patient Conference.

This interactive session was about the presenter’s experiences with writing, journaling, managing Facebook pages and websites, to find peace and to help others. It was a great session with much participation. We would love to hear your feedback!
