Hao and Christine attend the CureSMA meeting

The 20th annual CureSMA meeting was held in Disneyland in Anaheim CA June 16-18! We gave both a research talk and presented a family friendly poster. This is an excellent meeting because it combines both researchers, clinicians, and families affected by this disease.
