Harvard/MIT scientists and partners are set to spread awareness about neuromuscular diseases in the greater Boston area at the 3rd Annual Strength, Science and Stories of Inspiration (SSSI) 2016.

Attend the event, where key stakeholders will come together and facilitate new relationships to accelerate progress toward treatments and cures. In addition, hear about how MDA and SSSI together will launch a research fellowship to support the next generation of promising young muscle disease biologists. Scientific Program Officer Lianna Orlando and Boston office representatives Chris Marshall and Dave Spellman will be there from MDA.

SSSI has a fantastic lineup this year with “stories of inspiration” delivered by Tayjus Surumpudi, a Harvard undergraduate living with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), Shane Burcaw, an inspirational speaker/blogger living with spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), a headlining comedy show performed by world-renowned comedian, Comedy Central regular, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) family member, Max Amini, as well as a networking/social session with local stakeholders in the neuromuscular disease community.

Where: Harvard University’s Science Center Hall B

When: April 3, 6-10 p.m.
