Event Description

Registration is now open for PPMD's 2016 Connect Conference!

Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy's Annual Connect Conference is a unique convergence of industry partners, scientific leaders, medical providers, people living with Duchenne, and their families. This exceptional meeting has grown to be recognized worldwide as the foremost Duchenne muscular dystrophy meeting. But more than that, it is a way for families affected by Duchenne to connect with each other. To build support networks. To realize no one is on their own in the fight to end Duchenne.

This year, 2016, marks our 22nd Connect Conference. With the Duchenne landscape changing in so many ways just in the last six months alone, this year’s meeting is more important than ever and will help the community build partnerships, understand the nuances of Duchenne, open communication channels, and lay the groundwork for future collaborations. PPMD's Annual Connect Conference shapes our understanding of the Duchenne landscape and brings us closer to the day we end Duchenne.

We're looking forward to seeing you in Orlando, Kevin! PPMD will once again be offering a conference mentoring program for families who are attending a PPMD conference for the first time. If you're interested you can email PPMD's Ryan Fischer at ryan@parentprojectmd.org and he will connect you with a mentor!

We are so very excited to be attending :)

Any advice from past attendees ?

We will be staying at Universal's Cabana Bay the week prior to the conference, and then staying at Marriott's Grande Vista the week of the conference.

We look forward to have our children meet your children, thank you PPMD for all your help making all of this happen.
