The Myocarditis Foundation Family Meeting

The Myocarditis Foundation Family Meeting

Friday September 30 & Saturday October 1, 2022

will be at the Marriott Residence Inn

National Harbor, Maryland (Near Washington DC)


Dear Families:

We are very excited to share with you some of the details of our coming Family Support Meeting! We have a number of new, and innovative research trials for treatments in progress and the cardiologists/researchers involved will be at our meeting to share this information with you and answer any questions. It is also a wonderful way to meet others who are dealing with the same issues as you and gain support from them.

A welcome dinner will be held on Friday evening, September 30th.  You will meet with some of the Cardiologists and Researchers as well as sharing in a candlelight vigil honoring those affected or lost by the disease. The meeting will continue, on Saturday, October 1st, when we will be hearing about the latest innovations and happenings in the areas of myocarditis. and pericarditis. The afternoon sessions will be breakout sessions, depending on whether you are a survivor or have sadly lost a loved one. Within those sessions there will be specialists who can explain specifics on these diseases, answer your questions, and better help you deal with and / or live with these diseases. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be provided.

All meals and events at our meetings are at no cost to our families. There is no registration fee. We only ask, if possible, for you or someone that can support your coming, to take an ad in our Journal. You can share your loved ones’ picture, story, or just share your support of the Myocarditis Foundation. If you prefer not to, perhaps a business or family member can show their support with an ad as well. The Journal will be a compilation of information of the weekend.

The only cost to you is your travel and room stay either at the Marriott Residence Inn, or a lodging of your choice. We have been able to secure some sponsorship funds for the 2-night stay at the hotel. Please contact Melissa at the Foundation for more information.
