TLC Mission

The CMD Traveling Local Clinic (TLC) mission is two fold; first, to support the development of international and national centers of CMD diagnostic and medical management best practices, fostering long term relationships and collaboration between NNDCS, Cure CMD and neuromuscular centers and second, to provide global outreach to clinicians and families with educational material, informative presentations and registration within the CMDIR to drive awareness and pro-active care raising quality of life and longevity for those with congenital muscle disease.
