NMD4C Year in Review
NMD4C 2020 Year in Review
The NMD4C is proud to be where we are today. It is no easy task to unite a diverse community of stakeholders under a clear and united vision; even more difficult is to do so with the unique challenges every single member of our community faced during 2020.
With the sudden onset of obstacles early in the year, we are grateful for the outstanding work and involvement from everyone who was a part of the network in 2020. Thanks to the resilience and drive of our Steering Committee, Investigators, Collaborators, and members, we are in the position to celebrate a year of success and meaningful gains towards our network goals.
We look forwards to growing as a network with all of you in the coming year, and in the meantime invite you to reflect on some of the highlights from the past year.
Wishing everyone a happy holiday, and we will see you in 2021!

Early Career Holiday Reading
The NMD4C is fortunate to have so many members who are in the early stages of their careers; we believe that providing training and support to these members will impact the knowledge and understanding of NMD for the next generation of clinicians and researchers.
Throughout 2020 we have featured several of our members through our early career blogs; find the full list of blogs here! From finding inspiration to offering new perspectives, the blogs provide insight into the challenges and triumphs of navigating a nascent career in science and medicine.
2020 Webinar Wrap Up
With our partner, Muscular Dystrophy Canada, we wrapped our incredible slate of webinars in 2020 with December’s Up and Coming Stars in NMD, where we heard from several young researchers and clinicians who are engaged in exciting projects in NMD.
We are planning to build on these successful webinars in 2021 and will resume January 5th, with All You Need to Know about CMT – Clinical Updates, and NMD Case Rounds and Genetic Neuropathies in the following months!
