Ask-the-Expert Series

Questions About DM? Ask the Experts!

Do you have questions for DM doctors and therapists? Join us in 2022 for a series of “Ask-the-Expert” sessions with DM clinicians in diverse specialties. After the success of the Stump-the-Doctor session at the 2020 Virtual MDF Conference, MDF has created a series using the same format to connect families and DM experts.

Do you have specific questions related to Heart, Lung, Gastrointestinal, Brain, Exercise / Muscle Movement, Speech / Language, or the Reproductive System? Bring your hardest questions to our experts every 3rd Friday of the month until the 2022 MDF Annual Conference in September.

Questions? Contact us at info@myotonic.org or phone us at 415-800-7777.
