Dubai-13th Oct 2019:  the first MENA-MYO Practical Teaching course in Myology started its activities yesterday at the Roda Al Murooj Hotel in Dubai.

The course is endorsed by Treat-NMD, the Asian Oceanian Myology Center and the International Child Neurology Association. A number of specialists in the field of neuromyology from France and the Middle East provided the delegates with information on the latest innovations in the field of myology through interactive lectures and workshops.
Dr. Mahmoud Taleb Al-Ali, the Director of CAGS said that the organization of this course is the result of a fruitful collaboration between the well-renowned Institute of Myology and CAGS.  In its three days, the course covered topics on basic myology, muscular dystrophies, hereditary neuropathies, metabolic myopathies, genetic counseling, and novel therapies in neuromuscular disorders.
