Thanks to hundreds of SMA families across the country, families, researchers and medical providers are able to come together to share information on spinal muscular atrophy to better support the SMA Community.
This year marked the 24th Annual SMA Conference hosted by Cure SMA. Over 1,300 SMA families, researchers and medical providers came to together to learn new care tools and to help share their research ideas to push exciting SMA further toward a treatment and a cure.
The Annual SMA Conference would not be possible if not for the hundreds of events that take place throughout the country each year by our local SMA families. Thank you for your tireless efforts in making this program possible while also funding $2.5 million in new SMA research this year.
How can you get involved? The Development Team at Cure SMA put together a great Fundraising Workshop focusing on event revenue and expense strategies.
