This year's Annual Connect Conference in Washington, DC, June 18-21 will be our biggest ever, with so much to look forward to, including our Duchenne/Becker Transitions Meeting dedicated exclusively to adults with Duchenne and Becker (ages 14 and up), starting Wednesday, June 17. This pre-conference meeting has its own incredible agenda and is free to attend with your Connect Conference registration.
Wherever you are on your Duchenne journey, transition issues are important and early planning helps. Presenters for this meeting will specifically address topics of interest to teens and adults: driving, independent living, home modifications, life after college, dating and family life, managing personal care attendants, robotics as mobility options, navigating 'the system', and more. This meeting will also have a strong tone of self-advocacy and empowerment as we work to ensure that we transform this 'moment into a movement'.

Special thanks to our Duchenne/Becker Transitions Meeting Steering Committee for helping Annie Kennedy and the PPMD team plan this critical pre-conference meeting: Ben Dupree, Alan Chaulet, Tayjus Surampudi, Mario Damiani, and Kanch Randhawa.

PPMD's Connect Conference prides itself on bringing together the most important thought leaders in the Duchenne space. But just as importantly, we hope you will find this conference as a chance to really connect with this passionate and supportive community – a community few of us chose to be a part of, but none of us can live without.
We can't wait to see you and your family in Washington, DC!
