Cure Rare Disease: Power in Community Conference

The Power in Community Conference is an annual educational conference hosted in Boston by Cure Rare Disease, a nonprofit that forges collaborations between researchers and clinicians to develop customized therapeutics for rare, genetic disorders. 

The purpose of the Power in Community Conference 2019 is to bring together Duchenne/Becker's families, clinicians and drug developers to learn from each other and connect with one another. The conference provides each group the opportunity to better understand the needs and progress of ground-breaking therapies under development and evolving standards of care. The conferences goal is to educate while also fostering a sense of community and support for families affected by rare disease. 

At the conference, there will be a range of therapeutic development companies in attendance as well as leading clinicians within the space of Duchenne/Becker’s muscular dystrophy speaking about changing standards of care and other topics.We will have Dr. Brenda Wong speak from the clinical point of view. We will close the day with a family panel. Our family panel participants include a range of perspectives within the DMD space.
