The Myocarditis Foundation will be holding is 2nd Annual Patient and Family Support Meeting from June 7th-June 8th, 2014 in Point Pleasant, NJ. Please see the attached flyer for the official Save-The-Date.
The Patient and Family Support Meeting is an opportunity for those affected by myocarditis to come together, learn about the disease, discover the leading research being done in the myocarditis field, and talk with experts who treat and study myocarditis.

The meeting will begin with a dinner cruise on Saturday evening, June 7th. The next morning the meeting will start at 8:00am with a continental breakfast. Leading physicians and researchers will give talks about myocarditis, with lengthy question and answer sessions. The meeting will conclude with lunch, served at 12:30.
