We are thrilled that the Duchenne Program at University of Massachusetts Medical will launch this summer under the direction of Dr. Brenda Wong. It has been a longterm goal of the Duchenne community in the northeast to attract a physician who specializes in Duchenne.
We understand that this transition will be an adjustment for those who were previously under Dr. Wong's care, but we appreciate the work and planning that has gone into making this goal a reality for the families affected by Duchenne in New England and we thank UMass Medical and Dr. Wong for helping fill this massive unmet medical need in New England.

Dr. Wong can be reached at Brenda.Wong@theduchenne.org for questions and concerns.
