Living with DM Webinar Series

The Living with DM Webinar Series was developed to address the needs of the DM community. Our webinars are hour-long, online audio-visual presentations that feature one or more guest speakers who specialize in DM and/or the topics that are being discussed. You can watch all of our past webinars on the Digital Academy on this website.

If you're having trouble registering for or attending a webinar, please contact our Communications Manager, Jazzy Wright at jazzy.wright[at]myotonic.org

You may view past webinars at any time on the MDF Digital Academy.

Here's what you'll need to do to attend our webinars live:

  1. Click on the registration link for the webinar you'd like to attend (under "Upcoming Webinars" above).
  2. Fill out the registration form for that webinar. Each webinar requires its own separate registration.
  3. Save the email message confirming your registration and containing information on how to log on and participate.
  4. On the day of the webinar, click on the link included in your confirmation email at least 10 minutes prior to the scheduled start time.
  5. Make sure your computer's volume is turned up so you'll hear the audio portion. If you're using a telephone for the audio portion, have the telephone near your computer.

If you are unable to attend the live webinar, you can view it later on our Digital Academy. We upload each webinar 48 hours after its completion.

There is a question-and-answer session at the end of each presentation. If you plan to watch the webinar live, you may submit questions when you register for the webinar via the online registration form. For those planning to watch the pre-recorded webinar later on the Digital Academy, you may submit your questions via email to info@myotonic.org.
