Innovations in Care

We provide programs and services that transform the lives of people affected by neuromuscular disease.

MDA Engage Symposiums

MDA is excited to be bringing back in-person community education programs in 2023! MDA Engage Symposiums are full-day, multi-session programs with both disease-specific learning tracks and general learning tracks that are applicable to all neuromuscular diseases. Each Engage Symposium provides up-to-date information from experts in the field, empowering learners with actionable information to support their, or their loved one’s, care and life goals. Attendees will also have the opportunity to connect with other individuals and families impacted by neuromuscular disease and explore exhibitor booths to learn about different resources. Engage Symposiums are free to attend, but registration is required.
