Home / MDF DM Days


MDF DM Days are special one-day events that bring together clinicians, researchers and DM family members to share information and resources, and provide close-to-home access to educational sessions.

The events offer opportunities for the community to meet local regional clinical staff, hear first-hand research updates and learn more about DM disease management. Additionally, the event provides opportunities to meet nearby community members for networking and support. Information about MDF and its resources will also be shared.

This interactive, patient-centered conference will cover disease information both generally and for specific specialty areas. In addition, the speakers will provide research updates, advocacy information and, most of all, hope.

A light breakfast and lunch will be served. These events are made possible thanks to a generous MDF donor.
