Action Duchenne International Conference 2017

10 – 12 November 2017

Action Duchenne’s 15th International Conference is the preeminent Duchenne & Becker muscular dystrophy event in the UK.

Families and supporters are able to meet and learn about all aspects of the condition from international experts, as well as to find out from other families and those living with Duchenne muscular dystrophy, how to get the best life possible. For academics and clinicians, this conference provides the opportunity to discuss the latest findings in genetic research and to share expertise in optimal standards of care. 

We anticipate attracting at least 500 delegates from over 25 countries to Birmingham, made up of families, clinicians, therapists, researchers, pharmacological companies and, most importantly, those living with Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophy.

There will be a Gala Dinner held at the Hotel on Saturday evening. This is an optional extra. People living with Duchenne and children go free.
