We are pleased to announce that the Myocarditis Foundation will be hosting a Family Support Meeting and Researcher Workshop on September 21st-22nd at the Peabody Hotel in Orlando, FL. The family meeting is open to anyone who has experience with myocarditis, and we encourage friends and family to attend.
This meeting is in conjunction with the Heart Failure Society of America’s (HFSA) Annual Scientific Meeting, as they have asked the Myocarditis Foundation to host a join symposium on myocarditis to describe current research in myocarditis and identify effective strategies for myocarditis identification and management. We hope to reach and educate 300 physicians and researchers on the best ways to detect and treat myocarditis, while informing them of the breakthrough research in the field of myocarditis.
While the symposium is only open to members of HFSA, the Myocarditis Foundation decided to take this opportunity to host its own Family Support Meeting and Researcher Workshop. Being that many of the experts and researchers will be gathering for HFSA’s meeting, we have invited many of them to come and talk to the families affected by the disease and to share their expertise and collaborate with the Myocarditis Foundation researchers.
We also will be bringing together both the families and the researchers, so that the families can talk with the people who conduct the research that their fundraising events fund, and the researchers can meet the amazing individuals that have funded their research. Please see the Agenda for the Family Support Meeting and the Agenda for Researcher Workshop for more information.
RSVP’s are required to attend this event. Please email [email protected] by August 14th. While we are not charging for these meetings, as we want every family to be able to attend, we are graciously accepting donations. Please consider donating today to help us fund this unique and special opportunity for both our myocarditis families and researchers.
