While we are dedicated to educating the public about SMA and its effects, we also want to provide healthcare professionals with the necessary tools to enhance their knowledge of the disease. It is our hope that through shared data and information available through Continuing Medical Education (CME), our research community will enrich the quality of care and support available to SMA families.
