The Myocarditis Foundation is pleased to announce that we will be holding two meetings this year in Manhattan, New York and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Manhattan, New York – Friday, June 21, 2019
The Myocarditis Foundation will once again host a Family Support Meeting at the Warwick Hotel. This will follow our 4th Annual Myocarditis Foundation Gala which is being held at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel on Thursday, June 20, 2019. Although the final details have not been completed, there will be a Panel Discussion with members of our medical board and medical advisory board that day.
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania – Friday, September 13 and Saturday, September 14, 2 019
A welcome dinner will be held on Friday evening and the meeting will be held on Saturday, September 14th at the Downtown Marriott in Philadelphia.
As we have done in previous years, our meeting will be in conjunction with the Heart Failure Society of America’s Annual Symposium which is being held at the Philadelphia Convention Center adjacent to the Marriott. We will again have our physician specialists and researchers speaking and our panel Q & A. Representatives from the FDA and the National Institute of Health who will be participating at the HFSA conference have expressed an interest in hearing from our families about their experience with this rare disease.
All meals at our meetings will be provided at no cost to our families and in lieu of a registration fee, we encourage all families and friends to take out a personal ad in our journal. (More information will follow)
For any new attendees, please reach out to me at your earliest convenience for more information and/or questions regarding our events.
I will be sending out notices with final details to all prior attendees and to those that have provided the foundation with an email/phone number or address. If you are not certain that I have your information or if it needs to be updated, please contact me at the email listed below. I am also including my telephone number. And of course with any questions you may have regarding any of the events.
The agendas will be created based on prior feedback and suggestions from past attendees. We are looking forward to see our old friends and meet new ones and just being together again at whichever event you decide to attend.
