World Duchenne Awareness Day 2022

World Duchenne Awareness Day is coordinated by the World Duchenne Organization and takes place on 7th September each year. 

This years’s theme is Women and Duchenneaiming to raise awareness of the needs and challenges faced by women who support boys and men living with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (mothers, carriers, caregivers, sisters and partners) as well as the patient advocates, scientists and healthcare professionals leading change in the DMD field.
