Please join Robert Ro and the Young Adults group for a discussion on Preventative Care & Managing Secondary Complications! Many of us face challenges beyond reach and mobility, or know that we are at greater risk for secondary complications, and Robert is prepared to share some key tips & tricks for mitigating these.
We would love to have you join us to ask any questions you have or share things that have worked for you! We plan to cover topics such as maintaining bone density, managing insulin resistance, potential conditions to monitor for, and more.

FSHD Young Professionals is a social and support group focused on encouraging and empowering young adults impacted by FSHD. We created this space specifically for younger FSHDers to connect, collaborate, and provide networking opportunities. Whether you’re just graduating, starting a new position, or already on a career track, the FSHD Young Professionals group will help you develop a valuable network of friends facing similar challenges.

Our group is hosted and facilitated by volunteers who are excited to connect with you. We meet twice a month via Zoom. One will focus on hearing from a professional on a focused topic, with time for Q&A/discussion; the other will a social hour with a focus on conversation, connection, and fun. Join both meetings or just one, as your schedule allows.

Mark your calendar for the third Monday at 8pm ET/5pm PT. Once you join the group, no need to register again; you will be sent regular reminders and the Zoom link.

You can also join the conversation on Discord.

To contact us directly, please email: youngprofessionals@fshdsociety.org.
