Welcome to the East Tennessee Chapter!
Thank you for visiting the East Tennessee Chapter of the FSHD Society which officially launched in May 2019. 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.

After the meeting we had a house party with a live band and great food! A wonderful time was had by all
