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. This webinar will introduce the basic facts about FSHD for people who’ve just been diagnosed, or who want to brush up on their knowledge.

Dr. Samantha LoRusso is an assistant professor of neurology at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center in Columbus, OH. She worked closely with Dr. John Kissel at OSU as a fellow and then as faculty until Dr. Kissel’s retirement in 2018. She is a principal investigator or sub-investigator for research studies in FSHD, myotonic dystrophy, GNE myopathy, and Pompe disease. She is OSU’s current NeuroNEXT fellow, a fellowship designed to help in the development of clinical trial protocols.
