Annual Conference

Saturday 27th February
Maldron Hotel, Cork

Myaware organise an annual medical conference solely focused on the myasthenia, in order to bring you up to date with the latest information on the disease, research findings and support options, as well as to offer a forum for general discussion and mutual support.

In 2016 we look forward to welcoming you to Cork with an interesting line up of speakers, an opportunity to chat with others and ask questions.


What is Mysthenia?

Myasthenia Gravis (MG) is an auto-immune disease in which the immune system attacks and damages the nerve signal reception areas. This causes a breakdown between nerves and muscles and results in loss of effectiveness in the muscles of the arms, legs and eyes. The name ‘Myasthenia Gravis’ comes from the Greek and Latin words for ‘grave muscular weakness’. There are other forms which include Ocular Myasthenia, Congenital Myasthenic Syndrome and Lambert-Eaton Myasthenic Syndrome.LEARN ABOUT MYASTHENIA

Support Groups

Have myasthenia? Want to meet others?

We have support group meetings around Ireland. They're friendly, informal and it's a good way to chat to others about life with myasthenia.

All are welcome.
