"Care Considerations in Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy" the first ten years...

The Roundtable will provide an invaluable opportunity for parents and family members of boys with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy to gather with practitioners, researchers, and other parents in an informative and supportive environment.  It is our sincere hope that the Roundtable will facilitate an ongoing dialogue amongst the participants and the presenters so that we may achieve optimal care for boys living with Duchenne.

Hi Christine - you should set up a web pod - so that others from out of the area could dial into and log on to www to participate when flying to MA isn't do-able.  I think you can do with the phone company.  Best Char Burke
