About Our Previous Patient Information Days

In July 2017 we invited patients and caregivers to a free information day at Alder Hey Children's Hospital, to share with them some of the trials we've funded, update them on the work we are doing, and to give advice and information about how to access research and clinical trials of potential treatments for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

The sessions were focussed on what clinical trials are coming up in the UK in the next 12 months, and how patients can access them. We've created a presentation with all this information on it which you can VIEW HERE.

There were also updates on care and supporting the learning and education of children and adults living with Duchenne Muscular dystrophy..

It was wonderful for us to see so many of our community gather together and support the event. We were delighted with the feedback from the day, which you can read here by CLICKING HERE.
