Educational Webinars from the CMTA


Starting in September of 2013, the Charcot Marie Tooth Association (CMTA) began offering free educational webinars featuring top experts. Topics include a variety of topics related to diagnosis, treatment, and living with the neuromuscular disease Charcot Marie Tooth (CMT). After the original webinar, these webinars will be made available “on-demand” on the CMTA website (see address below under Resources).

By the end of 2013, three webinars had been made available for viewing on-demand. The first webinar was held during Charcot Marie Tooth Awareness Month in September, 2013. It featured Michael Shy, M.D., who gave a presentation covering “Everything You Wanted to Know About CMT and More.” Transcripts and presentation slides can also be downloaded for this webinar.

Two additional webinars have also been made available so far as “on-demand” webinars. The second, presented by Michael Needleman, Esq in November, 2013, covered the implications of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and the American with Disabilities Act (ADA)for employed individuals with Charcot Marie Tooth. A third webinar about physical therapy to improve functioning and quality of life for individuals with CMT, featuring James Nussbaum, PT, PhD, SCS, EMT, aired in December, 2013, and is now available for viewing.

The CMTA plans to offer a new webinar every month during 2014. Each webinar will be presented by an expert in their field. Experts include specialists in the areas medicine, occupational therapy, physical therapy, business, special education, genetics, motivational speaking, orthotics, and special education. Dates and speakers can be found on the CMTA website. Make sure to view these important educational webinars.
