Meet Our Partners

Finding a treatment or cure is a TEAM approach. We are not in this alone and there is strength in numbers. Cure CMD has actively pursued partnerships with other organizations to help drive momentum, share strategies and resources. Partnership may come in the form of co-funding a research grant, co-sponsoring annual infrastructure costs, such as the CMDIR, and co-hosting Webinars to provide the community with information on care and management. Cure CMD embraces partnership as key to meeting our mission: finding a treatment and cure for the CMDs and related limb girdle spectrum disorders.
