"This Month in Muscular Dystrophy"

Podcasts Dedicated to the Latest Neuromuscular Research

2010 saw the start of Nationwide Children's  "This Month in Muscular Dystrophy" podcast series.

Hosted by Kevin Flanigan, MD, these podcasts highlight the latest in muscular dystrophy and other inherited neuromuscular disease research.  During each podcast, authors of recent publications discuss how their work improves o  ur understanding of inherited neuromuscular diseases, and what their work might mean for treatment of these diseases.
