The Myotonic Dystrophy Foundation (MDF) received applications from doctoral students and postdoctoral scholars from institutions all over the world for the 2022 MDF Research Fellowship Program.

MDF is off to an exciting start to 2022! We hope you will join us for our annual community-wide events. Mark your calendars for Rare Disease Day, DM Family Day, the MDF Annual Conference, International Myotonic Dystrophy Awareness Day, and our biggest fundraising event of the year, the MDF Gala.

When Hunter Lord passed away at the age of 45 on Sunday, December 5, 2021, he left a permanent mark not only on the hearts of all who knew him personally, but on the Myotonic Dystrophy Foundation itself and the entire community that it supports.

You are invited to a new virtual disccuion group on how to empower oneself to maximize daily life with DM. Veteran facilitator Leslie Krongold, EdD and MDF Program Director Mike Knaapen will lead discussions on topics ranging from goal-setting to intimacy, hope, volunteerism, and more!
