We are living in extraordinary times as we navigate the current pandemic. MDA has never been more vital to the protection of the highly vulnerable community of individuals living with neuromuscular diseases (NMD), their caregivers and clinicians than right now. We are on the frontline ensuring access to care and bringing critical education and resources to over 250,000 individuals living with NMD across the US.
The COVID-19 pandemic has created unprecedented challenges for all of us, forcing us to make hard choices. After assessing numerous rescheduling options, we have made the difficult decision to CANCEL the 2020 MDA Clinical & Scientific Conference originally scheduled for March 21-25, 2020, in Orlando, Florida, rather than postpone it. We will instead proceed with launching the 2020 Virtual Conference Hub and planning for next year’s event, which will be held at the same location. Please mark your calendars for March 14 -17, 2021, for the 2021 MDA Clinical & Scientific Conference at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort in Orlando, Florida.
