How does nutrition impact the symptoms and progression of FSHD? This week, the group will discuss a webinar recorded in September 2022 about nutrition and FSHD. Watch the video in advance and compare notes and thoughts with us! The webinar, Nutritional and exercise interventions for FSHD, was presented by Mark Tarnopolsky, MD PhD, Professor of Pediatrics and Medicine and Director of Neuromuscular and Neurometabolic Clinic at McMaster University Medical Center.

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 second Tuesday at 7pm ET/4pm PT and the fourth Saturday at 11am ET/8am 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…
