Jennifer Egert, PhDThis week, we are excited to welcome Jennifer Egert, PhD, as our guest speaker! Dr. Egert is a clinical psychologist with FSHD who offers mindfulness-based psychotherapy and workshops in Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) and mindful approaches to cope with stress and anxiety. Dr. Egert began her own personal study and mindfulness practice in 2002 and has trained in MBCT and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) as well with other mindfulness-based psychotherapies such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and compassion focused interventions.

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…
