Looking beyond the scientific and educational needs of healthcare professionals, WMS aims to play an important role with regards to strengthening patient advocacy. This is accomplished by taking a variety of proactive steps to work together with patient advocate groups.
We extend a warm invitation to neuromuscular patient advocacy groups from around the world to collaborate with the World Muscle Society (WMS) in a collective effort to strengthen our community. At WMS, we are committed to building a robust network that fosters collaboration, information sharing, and support among organisations dedicated to neuromuscular health.
To achieve this goal, we are in the process of compiling a comprehensive directory of Patient Advocacy Groups. If you wish to be included in our directory, kindly fill out a form. If you are not already a WMS member, we encourage you to create a free account.
Please note that this directory is intended solely for informational purposes, and the WMS does not assume responsibility for the content of other organisations' websites. Together, we can create a powerful platform for advocacy and support within the neuromuscular community.
If you have any queries, please contact Bhavnita Patel firstname.lastname@example.org
