In addition, each year Families of SMA hosts and funds the largest SMA research conference, which brings together scientists from around the world to discuss the latest breakthrough in SMA. This meeting is held in conjunction with the FSMA Family Conference, making the meeting is a wonderful opportunity to meet the patients and families who benefit from the research.
