Conference sessions will begin on Friday, September 8th, and continue until Saturday, September 9th, 2023, at the Renaissance Washington, DC Downtown Hotel.

For those arriving early, there is a Welcome Reception & Advocacy Awards Presentation on Thursday evening where Senators Tim Kaine (D-VA) and Cynthia Lummis (R-WY) and their staff will be recognised for their friendship and support of the myotonic dystrophy community.
