COVID-19 & Duchenne: What you need to know (March 19, 2020)
On March 19, 2020, PPMD hosted a webinar with experts from our CDCCs to educate our community on the current state of COVID-19, as well as address questions that were submitted ahead of time. We want to thank Dr. Jeff Auletta (Nationwide Children’s), Dr. Seth Perlman (Seattle Children’s), Dr. Kathryn Wagner (Kennedy Krieger Institute), and Dr. Richard Shell (Nationwide Children’s) for providing the Duchenne community with informative and valuable information.
While the goal of this webinar was to ensure everyone in our community is on the same page, we understand some questions were left unanswered. PPMD is actively working on a series of webinars and materials to support your family during this time, and our priority is always to provide your family with the most up-to-date information possible.
Please continue to submit questions to firstname.lastname@example.org, so we can continue to adapt our resources to your concerns.
