February 23-24, 2023
This symposium is a clinical education experience for members of multidisciplinary teams who care for patients with rare, complex neuromuscular diseases including hereditary muscular dystrophies, motor neuron diseases, neuroimmunologic neuropathies and rare genetic disorders of muscle and nerve. Case presentations will include physical diagnosis and discussion of management and new therapies by participating experts. All discussions involve active participation by attendees. The educational format for this activity includes didactic lectures with in depth Q&A, panel discussions, and PowerPoint Presentations. The content of the program is identified and developed through a Call for Abstracts process and is specifically designed for Primary Care providers, Neurologists, NPs, PAs, and RNs that desire to gain advanced knowledge in diagnosis and management of patients with neuromuscular disease. The 2023 keynote speaker will present on the current advancements in congenital myopathies and muscular dystrophies.

The content of the program is specifically designed for Primary Care providers, Neurologists, NPs, PAs, and RNs that desire to gain advanced knowledge in diagnosis and management of patients with neuromuscular disease.
- Discuss the principles and challenges of drug development for ultra-rare congenital muscular dystrophies and congenital myopathies.
- Discuss recent advances in the genetic diagnosis of neuromuscular disorders, in research and clinical practice and the latest developments in treatment such as gene replacement therapy.
- Identify and apply current pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatments in motor neuron diseases including gene replacement therapy.
- Recognize the clinical applications of testing in neuromuscular disorders (to include histopathology).
