Everything you ever wanted to know about FSHD

(but were afraid to ask)

There’s no doubt that facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy is a complicated condition. The challenge of pronouncing it correctly is a piece of cake compared to the difficulty of understanding its genetics, peculiar effects on muscles, and the extreme diversity of its symptoms and severity. Our webinar on May 22 will introduce the basic facts about FSHD for people who’ve just been diagnosed, or who want to brush up on their knowledge.

  1. Due to a previous commitment, I unfortunately missed Dr. Samantha LoRusso’s webinar presentation that I was looking forward to seeing. Was this recorded? Can I access it on the FSH site?

    Thank you very much.
