Welcome to the Colorado Chapter!
Thank you for visiting the Colorado Chapter of the FSHD Society which officially launched in October 2018. We are here to build a local community of patients, family and friends, and help them connect and advocate for themselves and each other. Our hope for the future is to find a cure – Until then, we hope to bring a greater awareness to the community, and to help improve the quality of life of all those affected.
Join Us for Our Next Chapter Meeting on November 9th!
Beth Johnston from the FSHD Society will be sharing FSHD Society updates, milestones and goals, and giving an inside peek into what’s coming in 2020. We’ll also vision together for what we as a Chapter want to see happen in 2020, and of course celebrate a wonderful 2019! Light refreshments will be provided.
Please note that the Event Hall in the library is on the second floor. There is an elevator to the right of the main-level entrance to get upstairs.
