SUPPORT GROUP MEETINGS

 

Important TMS Support Group Meeting Update:   Effective March 6, 2020, all IN-PERSON support group meetings are cancelled for 2020! 

Please check below for online meeting schedules…some groups have moved their cancelled in person meetings to online (conference call) meetings!!  Please contact the support group leaders listed for more information.  

Due to the spread of the Coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak and multiple state stay-at-home orders, we have decided to suspend “in-person” meetings until further notice.  In an abundance of caution, we want to minimize our members’ risk of exposure.  There is new information coming out every day so there are still quite a few unknowns.  TMS feels it’s better to be safe than to find out someone unknowingly attended a meeting and they were later diagnosed.  We do this with the utmost respect and caution for the population we serve.

If you were planning to attend a meeting, please check the listings below for cancellation information.  You can also contact your Support Group Leader if you have any questions. 

Some the groups are planning to hold conference call meetings as a great alternative to in-person meetings!  Stay tuned for details as they become available.  If you don’t see a conference call meeting for your group and would like one, please contact supportgroups@tmsforacure.org.

As a reminder, our TMS Medical Advisory Board recommends all CDC guidelines be followed.
