If you are a patient or family member, FSHD University is your center for education about the art and science of living with FSH muscular dystrophy.
We focus on three "departments" – Physical Health, Wellness, and Research – drawing on the many resourceful, creative people in our community who have earned their MDs and PhDs in living with FSHD. Over time, we expect to establish new departments to address additional areas where we see a thirst for knowledge. Your input and suggestions are very much welcome.
This is YOUR university!
