Myasthenia Gravis Information Card - A guide to help others understand MG

We hope that this Awareness/Information Card will prove useful to many in a full range of situations.

It is found on page 5 of this newsletter . Feedback from our members is still welcomed and it would be great to hear how it has been helpful to you. Please copy the card as desired and perhaps have it laminated. Put it in your suitcase if you are going to hospital or share it with family and friends. When visiting health professionals, combine it with the Information booklet.

Guest Speaker for AGM

Associate Professor Stephen Reddel gave an informative presentation on “The Many Myasthenias”. Stephen spoke with passion about his desire for the majority of his Myasthenia patients to enjoy a high quality of life. He reflected that being engaged in work and the community and being mobile within the home leads to better life outcomes. The Association is truly appreciative of this second opportunity to have him speak in Brisbane.
