Please join us for our Support Group meeting with Dr. Jeffrey Statland and Kiley Higgs on Saturday, August 3rd. There will be a presentation on Exercise and FSH by Dr. Statland. This location is about 5 minutes south west from Kansas University Medical Center.

Dr. Statland is an assistant professor of neurology at the University of Kansas Medical Center with both clinical and research training in neuromuscular diseases. His primary research interest is in FSHD, one of the most prevalent adult muscular dystrophies. Recent advances in our understanding of the genetic mechanism behind FSHD have led to the identification of potential therapeutic targets, resulting in a pressing need to develop sensitive, disease-relevant outcome measures for clinical trials. Development of outcomes measures was recognized as a priority at a number of international FSHD meetings and workshops.
