The last day of FUTURES 2023 was jam-packed with sessions focused on how people with Duchenne can use their lived experience to help others going through the same challenges. A Game of Life encouraged people to share tips and tricks that work for them, breakout sessions met people wherever they were at in their Duchenne journey, and the closing session was an opportunity for everyone to share what was on their mind.
