2020 MDA Clinical and Scientific Conference

2020 MDA Clinical and Scientific Conference Logo

2020 marks the 70th anniversary of the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), the umbrella association transforming the lives of people affected by muscular dystrophy, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), and related neuromuscular diseases (NMDs) through innovations in science and care.

More than 1,250 members of the NMD community attended the 2019 MDA Clinical & Scientific Conference. This annual event convenes everyone at the leading edge of research and care — academics, researchers, clinicians, allied health professionals, advocates, and industry leaders — to meet, collaborate, and learn from each other.

The 2020 MDA Clinical & Scientific Conference will be held March 21–25, 2020, at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort in Orlando, Florida. Be with us as we recognize seven decades of commitment to NMD research and clinical development. Help us realize our vision of transforming care through innovation. Don’t miss out on what will be not only the defining event in NMD this year but also one of your biggest opportunities to stand with MDA and stand out in your field.
