Webinar | Current state of spinal muscular atrophy in Canada: Practical considerations for clinicians

2020-04-21 @ 17:00 - 18:30 EDT

NMD4C and Muscular Dystrophy Canada (MDC) are pleased to invite you to a webinar on the current state of spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) in Canada.

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