Webinar | Current state of Duchenne muscular dystrophy in Canada: Practical considerations for clinicians

2020-06-02 @ 17:00 - 18:30 EDT

NMD4C, Muscular Dystrophy Canada (MDC), and Jesse’s Journey (JJ) are pleased to invite you to a webinar on the current state of Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) in Canada.

This webinar is primarily targeted at Canadian clinicians and clinical academics with an interest in DMD. The speakers will discuss current DMD issues both generally and in the context of COVID-19. It will be similar to previous summits, but in a short webinar format. MDC, NMD4C, and JJ are providing organisational and technical support, and this is an independent clinical/academic webinar with no industry participation or sponsorship.
