Grand Rounds

The United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation has made it a priority to reach out to physicians through Grand Rounds.  The program introduces and/or broadens the knowledge base on mitochondrial diseases.  The primary purpose of the Grand Rounds is to provide continuing education to health care providers on topics specific to mitochondrial disorders, which also furthers the UMDF mission to promote research and education for the diagnosis, treatment and cure of mitochondrial disorders and to provide support to affected individuals and families.

With the generous support from various funders, the UMDF schedules up to eight Grand Rounds per year.  The Grand Rounds will also be coupled with a special family meeting to help educate patients/families about mitochondrial disease – and many times, the family meetings are suitable for outreach to nurses, therapists, educators, and various allied health professionals.

To see our current list of Grand Rounds and other scientific and clinical meetings for mitochondrial disease, visit here.

If you would like to see the UMDF bring a Grand Rounds Program to your area, please contact Janet Owens at

As part of the UMDF Grand Rounds Program, the UMDF offers our Family Meeting Program.  For sponsorship opportunities, please contact the UMDF Development Department.
