Certification Testimonials

“Now that I have completed the CureDuchenne Cares (certification) program, I want to be a resource to the Duchenne community. My goal is to remain informed on the development of treatments and make those available and accessible to my patients. I want them and their families to know that they have someone who is willing to help them get the best treatment offered,” said Elina.

“I see incredible value in a certification, and so do my patients and their families,” explains Haydee.

“It’s a validation of your knowledge and an opportunity to help inspire others to get certified and to expand their proficiency in the physical therapy field.”

“Before this certification course, my understanding about Duchenne was primarily therapy-based and I wasn’t comfortable discussing Duchenne specific clinical case studies and trials with the families,” admits Haydee.

“Having this up-to-date knowledge is a great starting point and has helped me open up dialogue and trust between my patients and their families.”

- Haydee Bustos
