For the past two years, Cure SMA’s Summit of Strength program has brought together thousands of SMA community members for the opportunity to network and learn about the latest advances in treatment, care, advocacy, and support. Considering event cancellations across the country due to the ongoing pandemic, Cure SMA is now offer these resources through its Summit of Strength Webinar Series.

This series of virtual webinars will run through the fall, bringing to your home experts who will speak on a variety of educational topics tailored to help individuals and families with SMA during this life in quarantine. These presentations will include family support and patient care topics like those that may have been shared at our in-person summits. Also, during each webinar, attendees will hear a brief presentation from one our Summit of Strength presenting sponsors: AveXis, Biogen, or Genentech.

Keep an eye on Cure SMA’s Summit of Strength page for added webinar topics and recordings of past webinars. We hope you will register for these webinars and submit questions in advance to help drive the conversation.

Despite the new reality of cancelled events, remote working, and social distancing, Cure SMA’s work for the SMA community continues as we remain committed to providing families the support they need for today. While we look forward to returning to in-person Summits of Strength when we are able, you can still engage with Cure SMA Chapter Leaders and connect with your local SMA community.
