Share Your Events with the NMD4C

The NMD4C strives to provide opportunities for our members for continuing neuromuscular training, development of knowledge and skills, and collaborate with other neuromuscular stakeholders; If you or your organization are hosting a neuromuscular event, conference or webinar, we would like to help you share it with our neuromuscular members! Over the upcoming year, the NMD4C will showcase events from the neuromuscular community on our website and through our social media channels. For further information and to have the NMD4C share your event, please contact network communications coordinator James Davis at .

Currently, the NMD4C offers monthly webinars in partnership with MDC as a part of our “Let’s Talk NMD” series, special webinars hosted by individual network working groups, the three-part Defeat Duchenne Canadian Conference in partnership with Jesse’s Journey and MDC, and early-career networking events over the past year; all of these events both past and present, can be found on our website.
