2018 FSHD Connect videos!

Our 2018 FSHD Connect conference was held at the Flamingo Las Vegas on June 9-10, 2018. The conference gathered together 400 patients, family members, researchers, physicians, and health experts for a day-and-a-half of intensive learning and community activism. Our meeting featured talks by thought leaders on the latest in scientific research and medical management of FSHD, including 10 academic and industry researchers who are actively working on new treatments for FSHD. The FSH Society also launched its national chapter program at this meeting.

Please share this post with family members and urge them to join the FSH Society if they have not done so already. There has never been a more important time for all individuals with FSHD and their families to be actively engaged with these efforts.
