Annual Conference & End Duchenne Tour
The largest, most comprehensive annual, international conference focused entirely on Duchenne.
Each year nearly 500 families from around the world gather at our Connect Conference to learn the latest progress in the fight to end Duchenne. They also gather for support, strength, and camaraderie.
This is your opportunity to gain direct access to the people fighting everyday for children like yours and perhaps, most importantly, it is your opportunity to meet and reunite with families on a similar journey as you. There is incredible power and strength in connecting.
Save the Date for 2018!

End Duchenne Tour
In an effort to reach every single family facing a Duchenne diagnosis in the U.S., PPMD has launched a multi-year community experience called the End Duchenne Tour. Combining each of the pillars that make up PPMD’s mission, the End Duchenne Tour brings updates on research, advocacy, and care to cities across the country, featuring a roster of leading experts in the Duchenne space.
You have told us what topics are the most important to you and we have listened, using your feedback to inform our robust agenda at each tour stop. This is also an opportunity to connect with local families and, when possible, explore your area Certified Duchenne Care Center.
As always, each meeting is free with breakfast and lunch provided. Kids are also welcome to attend and participate in PPMD’s Kids Track.
* Specific dates and locations for our 2018 visits will be added over the coming weeks.
