Presidents Robert Scholten of Dystonia Europe, and Stéphanie Frehel of AMADYS, welcomed the 120 participants from 18 countries to a two-day meeting with various presentations on dystonia, such as: Dystonia in Children, Oromandibular Dystonia, Writer’s Cramp, Surgical Treatment, Coping with Dystonia and many more. Abstracts will soon be available on the DE website. We thank Professor Marie Vidailhet for the organization of an excellent scientific programme.
During these first Annual D-DAYS, the launch of some exciting Dystonia Europe projects took place: the Dystonia Community, the APP – My Dystonia, and the awareness campaign Jump for Dystonia. More information will soon be available.
