Second upcoming webinar: Living with myositis during Covid-19

Myositis UK invites members to join a second online webinar on Wednesday 8 April to learn more about living with myositis during the coronavirus outbreak (Covid-19).

This webinar follows on from the success of the first one held a few weeks ago, where the discussions helped inform our new information page on myositis and Covid-19.

As before, the webinar will be hosted by Dr James Lilleker, NIHR Academic Clinical Lecturer at The University of Manchester, and Professor Hector Chinoy, Professor of Rheumatology and Neuromuscular Disease at The University of Manchester and Salford Hospital.

The webinar will take place online via Zoom teleconferencing (details below).

If you do not have a computer with internet access, you can dial in to hear audio via a mobile phone or landline (details below) but you will not be able to see the video broadcast of the doctors and their presentation.

We understand the coronavirus outbreak is a serious concern for many of you living with myositis, and hope this second webinar will provide a useful opportunity to get answers and reassurance.
