Join us for this one-day educational event for the neuromuscular disease community. Each symposium offers multiple learning sessions focused on increasing disease understanding, navigating critical life transitions, and supporting access to independence.

Being held in Minneapolis on September 23, this Engage symposium will offer two disease-specific tracks, Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) and Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT), as well as a Quality-of-Life track with sessions that are applicable to all individuals living with neuromuscular disease. Attendees will also have the chance to connect socially with others in the community and browse our Community Resource Hall to learn more about other local community, government, and industry organizations.

MDA is pleased to have Dr. Peter Karachunski, Associate Professor and Clinical Director at the Paul and Sheila Wellstone Muscular Dystrophy Center at the University of Minnesota, presenting the Keynote Address.
