New Horizons conference

We are excited to be holding a new conference for the Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) community in London from 1-2 March 2024.

Called New Horizons, the conference is for parents, family members and caregivers, and those working to help people with DMD.

It will include updates on the latest news and guidance on managing DMD to make sure you have the most up-to-date information.

It will also give you an opportunity to meet and connect with other people affected by DMD.
