We are extremely excited to announce the first draft of the agenda for the Action Duchenne International Conference 2017. The agenda is liable to change but gives a good picture of the breadth and depth of content at the event.
The conference will take place Friday 10 to Sunday 12 November 2017 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole.
The event attracts hundreds of people from the International Duchenne community, including people living with Duchenne, parents and family, pharmaceutical companies, clinicians and researchers.
This year, alongside the amazing line-up, we are delighted to confirm sessions specifically for the Becker muscular dystrophy community. We are also finalising some exciting sessions for the ‘Teenage Zone’ where the aim is to have fun in a more informal environment.
Early bird registration price is £60 per ticket (2 for 1 for Action Duchenne members*) and £70 for non members before 1 August.
From 1 August tickets are £70 (2 for 1 for Action Duchenne members*) and £80 for non-members.
Tickets for the Gala Dinner on Saturday night are £30.
Diana Ribeiro, Chief Executive Officer, Action Duchenne, said:
“Action Duchenne are delighted to present our most comprehensive and exciting program to date. For the first time ever we will have a dedicated Becker workshop welcoming the community and sharing ideas, as well as the best research on the horizon in Duchenne. This is in addition to the fantastic new adult sessions and fun and education for teenagers. It truly is the best place to be informed, be inspired and have hope and is the underpinning of what Action Duchenne does best, supporting the whole community.”
