Patient Advocacy for Diagnosis & Drug Development

This year’s discussion will include topics close to the hearts of families dealing with Perthes. Have you have ever wondered “Why don’t we know more about Perthes?” Or “How can I help drive research and change?” What about “Why has it taken so long to be diagnosed with Perthes?
