Dedicated to Minimizing or Eliminating Myocarditis Progression to Heart Dysfunction, Heart Failure and Sudden Death
When it comes to improving the global treatment success of myocarditis, knowing truly is half the battle. That’s why it’s the Myocarditis Foundation’s mission to raise awareness about this underdiagnosed disease through heart disease research, grants, and public education.
The Myocarditis Foundation was founded by a volunteer team of patients and world-renowned physicians and researchers. Today, we are still led by this dedicated group as they spread awareness about myocarditis, giant cell myocarditis, pericarditis, and related conditions. By inspiring and funding heart disease research, we strive to help the medical industry achieve accurate, fast diagnostic methods and effective therapies for myocarditis that successfully preempt its progression.
By initiating research endeavors that improve our understanding of myocarditis, our team hopes to accelerate the discovery of potent, practical methods of treatment. But aside from our findings, we also provide research photos to help illuminate other professionals who are operating on the front lines of myocarditis research and treatment.
Along with this photo set, we also provide an FAQ page complete with select research articles to help fill the gaps that exist in public and private myocarditis knowledge. Whether you or a loved one has been diagnosed or is driven to learn more about treatments, our page supplies answers that you can trust.
Myocarditis Research Grants
In many cases, professionals who want to perform heart disease research lack the resources they need to do so. That’s why the Myocarditis Foundation proudly sponsors myocarditis research grants to help researchers as they hunt for a cure. We provide the recipients of these grants with a $40,000 stipend over the course of one year, allowing them to fully explore their projects and break ground in myocarditis research.
Aside from our research grants, the Myocarditis Foundation also offers a postdoctoral fellowship in partnership with the American Heart Association. This fellowship provides funding for a range of project types with a focus on myocarditis, including etiological, pathophysiological, diagnostic, and other work.
Raising Myocarditis Awareness
Research is an integral part of the worldwide fight against myocarditis, but public awareness is equally as important. The Myocarditis Foundation has hosted free webinars that were open to the public. Each was hosted by one of our board members or associates, relaying important and oftentimes little-known information about myocarditis.
At the close of each webinar, viewers had the opportunity to ask any questions they had and received factual answers to them. Once each webinar was complete, they are posted to our website where they can be viewed at any time. Whether patients, researchers, or physicians make up our webinar audience, they contain important information that everyone needs to hear.
We are also working on developing Myocarditis Ambassadors around the country who can share information on the disease and raise awareness of its possibility, when patients and families are speaking with physicians.
Support Our Fight Today
Whether it’s through research grants, public education, or political activism, the Myocarditis Foundation works each and every day to educate both professionals and the public about myocarditis. By raising awareness about this disease and supporting targeted research efforts, we hope to see a day where both myocarditis diagnosis and treatment become safer, more accurate, and faster acting.
We are not alone in the fight against myocarditis. We stand side-by-side with several like-minded medical organizations, as well as people just like you. To help the world get closer to a cure for myocarditis, get involved in the fight or consider donating to the Myocarditis Foundation today.
