Support Groups

Hands Circling Hummingbird

We offer a variety of support groups for our MOG-AD Community. Support groups help us connect to others who have similar experiences.  So many find comfort in simply sharing their overall journeys as well as offering insight into many aspects of managing their health including how they solved problems getting the right treatment to stabilize their disease, the best way to navigate insurance and how to choose the right doctor, just to mention a few.

 

We offer a variety of support groups – all virtual through Zoom. Join one today!
