Welcome to "NDF TALKS…”

Each episode features a GNE Myopathy community member’s personal experience with GNE Myopathy.
Participants will include patients, scientists, caregivers and family members, all sharing the triumphs and sometimes tribulations of life with this rare disease in order to provide potentially helpful and supportive information for anyone whose life is touched by GNE Myopathy.
