Programs:

The two MGA Clinics are a collaborative effort with local Neurologists who specialize in the treatment of MG. Physician offices make an effort to schedule MG patients the same day of the week so that MGA staff and volunteers can meet with patients/clients in the physician’s office before their appointment. A new diagnosis or coping with a chronic disease can cause anxiety and fear. Meeting with a MGA staff member or volunteer offers an informal, friendly and less medical opportunity for sharing. The purpose of the clinics is:
• Provide support to MG clients and referrals to human services
• Provide “New Member Packets” for newly diagnosed members
• Provide opportunities to discuss coping with symptoms
• Provide opportunities to discuss wellness techniques & healthy lifestyle
• Provide informational material regarding links to MG and other health-related resources

Mission:
