The Hereditary Neuropathy Foundation believes that physical activity plays an essential role in physical and mental well being, especially for people affected by debilitating diseases like Charcot-Marie-Tooth. The Movement is Medicine™ mission is to promote the safe adoption of a more active lifestyle through exercise and nutrition programs specifically created for those with disabilities.

After each live class we will post recording on this page so participants can utilizes classes at their convenience.
