Back in Washington, DC! PPMD’s Advocacy Conference Returns March 5-7

Want to be part of history? Want to contribute to future progress in understanding, diagnosing, and treating Duchenne? Register today to join PPMD’s 2023 Advocacy Conference, March 5-7th, in Washington, DC!

We are excited to announce that not only will we be back in person in Washington, DC, but this year will mark our first hybrid Advocacy Conference with both in-person and virtual participation options.

We hope that you are able to make it to DC with us! Your advocacy efforts help to ensure that — while Duchenne may be a rare disease — we are central to the considerations of policy makers.

Registration Deadline: February 20th, 2023.
There is no registration fee to attend.

Hybrid Participation

There is no substitute for being face-to-face in Washington, DC, especially this year. Things are back in full swing on Capitol Hill and there will be many new members of Congress starting in January 2023. It is vital that we have a strong cohort of advocates ready to share their stories with legislators so we can send a united message in support of our policy priorities.

In-Person Advocates

Our focus for the 2023 Advocacy Conference will first be on securing as many advocates for in-person Hill visit meetings as we possibly can during March 5-7, to make our voices heard in our nation’s Capitol.

Virtual Advocates

Once the in-person Advocacy Conference wraps up, we will then coordinate with our at-home advocates to fill in gaps with virtual meetings during the week following the Advocacy Conference. Dates and availability for virtual advocate meetings may be limited and will only be offered to participants who live in Congressional districts/states where an in-person meeting did not take place.
