The Duchenne Program at UMass Medical School is a new clinic and research site that is expected to launch in summer (probably July) 2018. The Duchenne program is presumed to serve as a site for multiple clinical trials. In collaboration with founding clinic director Dr. Brenda Wong, the program is being established with the driving goal of improving research and care outcomes for children and adults with Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophies.

It is expected that the clinic will provide integrated, interdisciplinary care including cardiology, pulmonology, endocrinology, and orthopedics. The clinic will also provide physical therapy, nutrition, social work, child life, and orthotics support.
