Third Annual MG Illuminate Kicks Off Myasthenia Gravis (MG) Awareness Month

A wealth of community-led discussions, stories and all-new resources debuted at the virtual event.


The new Everyday Energy Savers eBook took center stage during a special hands-on segment of MG Illuminate. The eBook is a collection of energy-saving tips created by the MG community, for the MG community. The show’s host, Whitney*, met with Julia*, an occupational therapist who lives with MG, to discuss some of those tips. You can download the eBook right now!



The first episode of a new video series, MG Real Talks, premiered during the show. “Using Self-Advocacy to Better Partner with Your Doctor” highlights an engaging discussion between a neurologist and three people with MG. Watch the first episode now and be on the lookout this fall for the next episode in the series!



MG Illuminate also featured the world premiere of a new short film from the director of A Mystery to Me. The film explores some of the burdens of MG—and the idea of moving forward—through the eyes of three MG community members. And of course, the show concluded with lighting up landmarks in teal from coast to coast to spread national awareness of myasthenia gravis!
