UPDATE - We are now offering this CME-accredited course as an on-demand online offering. Click here for the course information.
The FSHD Society is offering its first-ever CME-accredited masterclass on facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy (FSHD). This course, which will be held virtually on August 12, is of interest to any physician and allied health professional who sees adult and pediatric neuromuscular patients. They will be able to earn up to 4.25 continuing medical education (CME) credits—a great incentive for doctors who need CME credits to maintain their medical licenses and/or credentials. If you know any doctors or other medical providers who would be interested in updating their knowledge of FSHD, please let them know. You can:
- Simply forward this blog link to them;
- Or send them a letter or email. Download our letter template to help you compose your letter: CME Dear Doctor letter template.
This masterclass offers comprehensive, authoritative updates on diagnosis, genetic testing, symptom management, therapeutic strategies, and anticipated clinical trials. Held virtually, it will include live, interactive sessions with ample time for questions and discussion.

I would love to be part of this seminar
I was at Rochester participating at a research for FAHD when I was newly diagnosed
Through meditation and exercising in the water, I have increased my muscle strength a lot
So I would love to participate in new research if done
For how the mental strength impacts the wellbeing when living with FSHD
Now I live in Barcelona,
