The National Conference is the largest gathering of the myasthenia gravis (MG) community in the U.S. The conference is a place for people to connect, learn and share their personal and professional experience with MG. We welcome people with MG, their caregivers and health professionals to attend.

Why attend?
The National Conference offers a wealth of information for everyone in the MG community, whether newly diagnosed or having lived with MG for years. Presentations and breakout sessions cover all aspects of MG, from medical to personal to social. MG experts, MG community leaders, people with MG and family members come together to share their experience. Join us to gain knowledge, share resources and speak with others “who understand!”

Join the National MG Walk!
Kick off the conference with the National MG Walk on March 30th! This is a great chance for those who may not have a Walk in their own community to form or join a team. Team Duck Tapers, comprised of Facebook friends from around the country, was the top team at our New Orleans Walk in 2017, and again in Kansas City for the 2018 walk, and they are looking for a three-peat! So, plan to come for both the MG Walk and the National Conference. Start now to form your own MG Walk team and give the Duck Tapers a ‘walk’ for their money!

Make it a family trip or mini-vacation!
So much is happening in the “ATL”! The Mercedes Benz Stadium is home to the Atlanta Falcons NFL team and the Atlanta United Soccer team. SunTrust Park is home to the Atlanta Braves and features the new Coca-Cola Roxy Theatre, shopping and restaurants!

Atlanta is hot on the heels of Hollywood to become the film capital of the United States, with over 1,957 production-related companies. According to the Motion Picture Association of America, Atlanta is third in the U.S. with only California and New York ranking higher.

With so much going on, is it any wonder that the U.S. Census reports that Atlanta is the third fastest growing metro area in the nation?

We look forward to welcoming y’all to Atlanta – this year’s National Conference is going to be the best one yet!
