With adult, teen and school-age program tracks, the 2013 conference was designed to offer practical information, fun activities and the chance to meet and network with other families affected by muscular dystrophy.
Parents heard updates on clinical research, assistive technology and home modifications, attended workshops, and had lunch with various experts.
Teen and school-aged patients learned about meeting goals, tried their hand at research lab experiments, and had fun learning about cartooning with professional artist Thaddeus Draheim.
Watch here as kids who attended the event talk about living with muscular dystrophy.
