Please join us for our next member support group at the Manchaca Branch Library. We welcome all FSHD patients and family members to attend this meeting!

Special guest speaker Dr. Yessar Hussain, a neuromuscular physician at the Dell Medical School and Austin Neuromuscular Center. He is putting research together about eye involvement in FSHD patients and will be discussing the systemic involvement of FSHD, as well as any updates in clinical trials.

Steve Kowalik will also be joining us. He has been a massage therapist for 10 years, focusing on chronic pain and muscle issues. He’s had a good amount of success working with Ben – helping him regain some function in his arms and shoulders, and “would love to work with some more FSH folks, to see if we can get some repeatable results.” We last saw him on our FSHD Society Podcast accompanied by Ben Livingston, Austin Support Group Meeting Leader and Tim Hollenback, the Wisconsin Chapter Director.

Please Contact Ben Livingston for any questions you may have at:
