Join Drs. Michael Cole, Kathy Mathews, Christopher Cooper, and Eyad Hanna, of the University of Iowa as they discuss a new study regarding the frequency of gastrointestinal and urological symptoms in FSHD, as well as their impact on quality of life. These data were collected by a survey that the FSHD Society distributed last year, so now you will find out the results.  The Iowa team will discuss their findings, what this may mean for future research, and the importance for patients to specifically discuss these symptoms during their doctors appointments.
