Myotonic created the Myotonic DM Day program to bring together clinicians, researchers and myotonic dystrophy (DM) family members to provide close-to-home access to educational sessions and provide networking and friendbuilding opportunities for our community. The one-day events offer opportunities for the community to meet local regional clinical staff, hear first-hand research updates and learn current symptom management strategies from knowledgeable professionals. MDF has hosted more than a dozen DM Days since launching the program in 2017, and many more are planned in Fall 2019 and beyond.
