The Annual SMA Conference is an invaluable resource for the entire SMA community.

2019 Annual SMA Conference

Our annual conference is the largest SMA conference in the world. Through the conference, we bring together researchers, healthcare professionals, and families to network, learn, and collaborate. The family conference includes a variety of workshops, keynote sessions with leading researchers, a family-friendly research poster session, and more—plus fun events like our meet-and-greet, pajama party and movie night, and teen and adult social activities.

This year's conference dates have shifted one day later. The main conference days this year for workshops are all day on both Saturday and Sunday. Conference will begin on Friday, June 28th with the Meet & Greet and ends on Monday, July 1st with the "It's a Wonderful Life" Panel. The 2019 Annual SMA Conference will be held at Disneyland in Anaheim, CA.

SMA Researcher Meeting

The Annual SMA Conference is really two separate events—one for families and one for researchers—that run in parallel, so that families, researchers, and clinicians can interact with and learn from one another. If you are an academic or clinical researcher, use the links to learn more and to register.

The SMA Researcher Meeting will begin on Friday, June 28th and end on Sunday, June 30th.

SMA Clinical Care Meeting

The Annual SMA Conference added a third component to the family conference and researcher meeting. We held the inaugural Cure SMA Clinical Care Meeting at the 2018 Annual SMA Conference. The target audience for this meeting included clinicians who diagnose and care for SMA. 

The SMA Clinical Care Meeting will be held on Thursday, June 27th.
