Innovations in Care

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

MDA Engage Community Education Seminars

At MDA, we aim to bring knowledge and resources to you in accessible and understandable ways. Through MDA’s Engage community education program, you will have access to a variety of important, and relevant educational content. While the pandemic has caused us to shift from being in-person to virtual events, the scope and availability of resources has not changed. We invite you to explore our educational offerings.

These virtual seminars will feature information on neuromuscular disease around such topics as best practices in clinical care, genetics, and research. Each seminar will feature regional specialists as presenters and will have a focus on a specialty area. Please see the information below about specific events. While these events will highlight regional medical professionals, families are encouraged to attend any of the seminars and their sessions.
