PPMD Hosts 2024 Cardiac Workshop, May 9-10

PPMD is excited to bring together experts in the cardiac field, spanning clinicians and researchers, to the third annual PPMD Cardiac Workshop, May 9-10, 2024 to delve into current and emerging issues in cardiac care in Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophy.

As part of PPMD’s Care Consensus Meeting Series, PPMD convenes leading experts to address critical components in the management of Duchenne and Becker. Hosted by PPMD and expert committees, these meetings identify and assess key gaps in care, education, and understanding the complexities of the condition. 

This third meeting in PPMD’s three-part Cardiac series will take a slightly different form than the first two Cardiac Workshops. Whereas discussions have previously focused on tackling issues related generally to cardiac care in dystrophinopathy, this year will take a deeper dive into the rapidly evolving landscape of approved therapy and post-gene therapy cardiac monitoring and lifespan cardiac care. Topics this year include pathology and imaging, cardiac monitoring in clinical trials, gene therapy, transplantation, and more. 

The 2024 Cardiac Workshop will aim to define and establish a small consortium of care centers to lead the way in the next chapter of Duchenne and Becker cardiac care with a focus on aggressive, standardized clinical care. 

PPMD looks forward to welcoming 75+ representatives from across several academic institutions and industry partners, all with the shared goal of driving forward progress and change for a better tomorrow for every individual living with Duchenne or Becker. 

Updates from the 2024 Cardiac Workshop

Following the Workshop, PPMD will share updates with the wider Duchenne community in a comprehensive recap blog highlighting key learnings from the meeting.

Additionally, discussions and takeaways from the Workshop will be shared at PPMD’s 30th Annual Conference, taking place June 27-29, 2024 in Orlando, Florida. We hope to see you there – register today!
