A Collective Voice of Hope
MIA hosts several support group meetings throughout the year. Please click the link below to view our previous meetings!
It's not rare when it happens to you
MIA has on going research projects and will continue in the future with:
-Methodist Rehabilitation Center (MRC)
-University Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC)
-University of Southern Mississippi (USM)
-Wilson Research Foundation.
Participants of the support group continue to enroll in these studies in Mississippi.
The PCORI funding has allowed us to form a non-profit organization called Mosquito Illness Alliance. We hope to offer support for patients and their families, education to the medical community, and build our research efforts.
