In an effort to reach out to the fibromuscular dysplasia community, FMD Chat will be making much of its annual retreat available via the web.
While no livestream can replace the experience of meeting other FMD patients and caregivers face-to-face, FMD Chat realizes that many patients are unable to travel due to physical or financial constraints. Patients and others are encouraged to tune in to FMD Chat's YouTube channel from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. ET on Saturday, Sept. 14 as presentations are streamed live. On Twitter, follow @FMDChat or the #FMDaware hashtag. Updates also will be posted to FMD Chat's Facebook page.

Fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD) is a complex disease that is most commonly seen in women, with systemic presentation that may include stenosis, aneurysm or dissection most commonly in the renal and carotid arteries, migraine-like headaches, dizziness, and tinnitus or a swooshing sound in the ears. Low bone density, joint laxity and degenerative disease in the spine also have been linked to the disease. FMD is considered a rare disease; however, it is also believed to be underdiagnosed.
