Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy Designates Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin a Certified Duchenne Care Center


Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy (PPMD), a nonprofit organization leading the fight to end Duchenne muscular dystrophy (Duchenne), named the Neuromuscular Disorders Program at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin  to be the 21st clinic to be named a Certified Duchenne Care Center, a designation created in 2014 as part of the organization’s Certified Duchenne Care Center Program.  

Duchenne is the most common fatal genetic disorder diagnosed in childhood, affecting approximately one in 5,000 live male births.
