About WDAD

In honor of this annual worldwide day dedicated to Duchenne muscular dystrophy, we bring individuals and families, Duchenne experts, and industry partners together to recognize different aspects of Duchenne life, acknowledge the challenges still to come, and show that we are Stronger than Duchenne. 

Breaking Barriers in Duchenne

Want to submit a video sharing how you’re breaking barriers in Duchenne? There is still time to do so! We will be sharing any additional submissions throughout the month of September 2023 in our stories.
