Early-Onset Parents Roundtable

Dr. Jeffrey Statland
Jeffrey Statland, MD

Join us for a conversation with Jeffrey Statland, Professor of Neurology at University of Kansas Medical Center in Kansas City, Kansas. He is the co-director of the FSHD Clinical Trial Research Network (CTRN) and his specific research interest over the last 10 years has been preparing for clinical trials in FSHD. He has worked with collaborators to develop new disease-relevant outcome measures to assess patient-reported disease burden, functional impairment, and physiological changes in muscle.

Dr. Statland will join us to talk about the latest developments in trials and treatments for pediatric FSHD and give us information from the first ever pediatric-focused session at the World FSHD Alliance in Milan, Italy. This meeting will be packed full of the latest pediatric news and will give you a chance to ask questions of one of the leaders in the FSHD medical/research community.

Join us for our monthly Early-Onset Parent Roundtable on the 3rd Tuesday of each month, where parents meet to exchange ideas, offer support, and gain insight to keep our children with FSHD as healthy and mobile as possible. We will have plenty of time for parents to exchange ideas and ask/answer questions from other parents.

We’d love your thoughts and participation. Please join us and bring your ideas, questions, answers, and tips and tricks.
