UPDATED! In-Person Family Meeting October 6th and 7th in Cleveland, Ohio

October 6, 2023 - October 7, 2023

In Person Family Meeting

We have recently added updates on the in-person Myocarditis Foundation’s Family Meeting of October 6th and 7th, 2023

We are looking forward to seeing everyone there!

October 2022 was the first in-person meeting we were able to have since COVID started in 2019, and it was a wonderful success.

A few comments from some of the attendees:

“This was a fabulous gathering. We were blessed to connect with other bereaved families of Myocarditis and to feel the support of the Myocarditis Foundation and the doctors.”

“We were pleasantly surprised by the intimacy and personal warmth of a medically-oriented event.”

“We really appreciated being together with this group of people who can all relate so well to our own trauma and journey.”

Since then, there have been a number of exciting developments in the field of myocarditis research that will be shared by the most knowledgeable myocarditis and pericarditis cardiologists and researchers in the country who will also be attending the meeting. They will be there to help answer your questions and provide updates on exciting work being done.

We know that October seems so far away, but sadly, it will be here before we know it.

While we still need time to work on the particulars of the Meeting, we would like to share with you our tentative Agenda so that you better understand our meeting format and look forward to attending.
