Innovations in Care

We provide access to support and programs that empower the lives of people living with neuromuscular diseases.

MDA Engage Symposiums

MDA Engage Symposiums are half-day, multi-session programs with both disease-specific learning and general learning sessions 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.
