Certified Duchenne Care Centers

Certified Duchenne Care Centers

People with Duchenne are being cared for by clinics both near and far. Every one of them deserves the best care and treatment possible. Parents, caregivers, patients have the right to know who is in charge of delivering the care they require and to understand what clinics meet optimal standards.

PPMD's Certified Duchenne Care Center Program helps to ensure centers maintain the highest standards in clinical and sub-specialty services, rapidly apply new evidence based knowledge, and comply with standards in clinical care that were established by the CDC Care Considerations. The goal of the program is to reduce discrepancies in care and to make comprehensive care accessible and available for all patients with Duchenne.

We have currently certified over ten centers across the country, and plans are being made to award other qualified centers.


Provide Feedback on Your Care Center

Your responses will help us to continue to sustain and improve the care and services provided to you and your family.
