Celebrating Our FSHD Heroes
The FSHD Connect conference has become a highly anticipated, must-go event where our community can soak up information available nowhere else, see dear friends, and meet new ones. It is a time to find sympathetic comrades and also celebrate the resilience and brilliance of our community.
One way we celebrate is to recognize our heroes, community leaders who have gone above and beyond to raise visibility and mobilize community action to advance our mission. We invite you to nominate an individual or group deserving of our 2020 Community Award. To make a nomination, please provide:
- First and last name of the nominee;
- Address, phone, and email of the nominee;
- Up to 200 words about why the nominee deserves the award;
- Up to 3 references (include contact information) who can speak to the nominee’s accomplishments.
Email your nomination to us by May 1, 2020. The 2020 Community Award recipient will be recognized at this year’s FSHD Connect banquet on June 27.
And don’t forget to register for this year’s FSHD Connect, the world’s premier gathering of people living with FSHD, researchers, clinicians, and advocates.
