The work of the MAA is growing and expanding rapidly with Government and Industry seeking us out for community engagement feedback. Opportunities to develop services and research for the MG community are opening up. The MAA need manpower to take up everything that is offered. NSW now have 4 representatives on the Board but Queensland cannot match this and we need to step up.
If you have a passion to bring about change, if you have health or industry experience, this could be an exciting addition to your interests. It is not necessary for you to have Myasthenia.

Although raising awareness is not limited to one month a year, June is an opportunity to do that little bit more.

There are many ways you can raise awareness about Myasthenia Gravis...

What are you doing in June to help raise awareness?

MAA UPDATE

Consumer Research Survey - IVIg
If you would like to assist with the development of future resources for this valuable program, we are looking for people to share their experience of immunoglobulin treatments. Carers are also welcome to participate.
NPS MedicineWise is looking for people who have been prescribed immunoglobulins (antibodies) as part of their treatment to take part in a short survey online and/or an in-depth interview over the phone.

Management committee members as well as the regional co-ordinators, regularly suggest that people keep a diary of their symptoms, medications, lifestyle impacts etc. in preparation for their visits to the Doctor.
