This conference series — available free of charge to anyone affected by Becker muscular dystrophy (BMD), as well as the individual’s family and friends — is designed to bring together members of the BMD community for informative presentations and discussions.
In 2013, MDA and John Hopkins Medicine are proud to present the national Becker Muscular Dystrophy Conference. The conference is free to all participants, and is open to all individuals with BMD and their families and friends. The meeting will emphasize “optimizing the lived experience of BMD” through expert presentations on such topics as clinical care, research updates and current clinical trials. Other presentations also will address workplace accommodations, navigating resources and other daily living issues.
