PPMD’s End Duchenne Tour stops are one-day long events, providing updates on the latest clinical trials and early-stage research, care standards, and practical resources. Our Tour stops also give families the opportunity to interact with vetted leaders in Duchenne, connect with other local families on the same journey, and share ways to become involved in PPMD’s programs and The Duchenne Registry.

Although each tour stop is marketed to those in the broader region, we welcome anyone to register and attend regardless of where you live! Registration will open approximately two months prior to each event.

March 5-7, 2023

Advocacy Conference

Each year, PPMD ensures that the Duchenne community is at the forefront of the hearts and minds of Congressional leaders and champions in Washington, DC by convening our annual Advocacy Conference. We are excited to announce that in 2023 not only will we be back in person in Washington, DC, but this year will mark our first hybrid Advocacy Conference.

There is no substitution for being face-to-face in Washington, DC. Our focus for the 2023 Advocacy Conference, March 5-7 will first be on securing as many advocates and in-person Hill visit meetings as we possibly can, to make our voices heard in our nation’s Capitol. Once the in-person Advocacy Conference wraps up, we will then coordinate with our at-home advocates to fill in gaps with virtual meetings. Dates and availability for these virtual meetings may be limited.

The registration to attend PPMD’s Advocacy Conference is free and we hope that you are able to make it to DC with us. Registration and hotel accommodations will open in mid-January. More information on the virtual component, including dates and format, will be available in the near future.
