After months of planning the 2019 MAA Myasthenia Gravis Conference was huge success! Such a lot of energy and conversation went into reaching out across Australia with New Zealand captured as well. The result was 147 registrations, reaching full capacity for our volunteer team.

The room looked great, the energy reverberated, and the presentations came quickly. It was a very special day for people with a rare disease to come together and realise that they were not alone.

Feedback from the day reflected the warmth and generosity offered by an amazing group of Specialists who shared their knowledge and compassion. Conversation from these Doctors included helping us to understand how Rituximab works, why there is a tightening guideline to IVIg prescriptions and why patients should not be fearful, what is Therapeutic Plasma Exchange, and can it be a possible option for some patients.
