Irving, TX US
February 21, 2019 to February 22, 2019
This symposium is a clinical education experience for members of the multidisciplinary teams who care for patients with rare, complex neuromuscular diseases including hereditary muscular dystrophies, motor neuron diseases, neuroimmunologic neuropathies and rare genetic disorders of muscle and nerve. Patient case presentations will include physical diagnosis and discussion of management and new therapies by visiting experts. There will be scientific presentations of new data and results. All discussions involve active participation by attendees. The educational format for this activity includes didactic lecture w/ in-depth Q&A sessions, panel discussions, scientific posters, and case presentations.
