The Road Ahead: MDF Strategic Planning Report

As the sole DM-only patient advocacy organization in the US, MDF plays an im-portant role in the search for treatments, in improving care, and ensuring that the DM community voice is heard as we move forward. To continue to meet our obligations to our community and to our mission of Care and a Cure, MDF held its annual strategic planning offsite last weekend. Learn more.

Rare Disease Day 2015

MDF is proud to be a Rare Disease Day partner for the third year in a row! In 2015, our advocacy initiatives will focus on improving and updating the reg-ulatory review process, and ensuring that our community understands the drug development pipeline.

Visit our advocacy issues page for more information on current regulatory legislation. You can also read a blog post by MDF Research Director Sharon Hesterlee about the impact that proposed changes to the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) may have on myotonic dystrophy. Finally, be sure to tune in for "FDA 101," a webinar on February 26 introducing the FDA and its processes.
