Warsaw Workshop

On 9th November, an International Workshop on DMD Standards of Care was organised in Warsaw by the local CARE-NMD project partner, the Department of Neurology at the Medical University of Warsaw.

It was granted an honorary patronage by the Rector of the University, and featured a scientific programme covering all aspects of best-practice DMD care.
