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.”
