Dupuytren Foundation cool tools and Newsletter

For all of us who are supporters of the US NA pioneer, Dr. Charles Eaton, I'm posting the Dup Foundation August Newletter and a link to their youtube channel where you can find cool tools to measure the amount of contraction (as cool as having to do the measurements...)

Dupuytren Foundation Newsletter August, 2013
We will find a cure.

The Dupuytren Foundation may have seemed quiet, but there's been quite a bit of internal activity reorganizing and streamlining for the last several months. This newsletter marks a milestone of consolidating all of our electronic resources into one system, which will make it easier for you to stay in touch and easier for us to work together.

Dupuytren YouTube Channel
A growing resource
Dupuytren related videos produced by the Dupuytren Foundation now have a home:
http://www.youtube.com/DupuytrenFoundation
These videos include:
• All presentations from the 2010 International Symposium on Dupuytren's Disease
• Technical videos on the treatment of Dupuytren Disease
• A new section: the Dupuytren Foundation Two Minute Video Series, which are short educational videos covering a growing range of topics relevant to Dupuytren Disease and the issues which are important in the search for a cure.
The latest addition to this collection is "Measurement of Dupuytren Disease ", reviewing the problems and potential of simple measurement techniques needed to better study progress and outcomes of treatment. Explore the issue yourself with the interactive online Dupuytren Finger Angle Measurer, (works on all modern browsers other than Internet Explorer; we're working on it!).


Physical Location
We now have a home.
Timothy Eaton has generously donated use of conference and event space at the Eaton Fine Art Gallery, located in historic West Palm Beach, Florida:
435 Gardenia Street
West Palm Beach, FL 33401
This location will be used to host a series of support and strategic planning meetings by the Dupuytren Foundation to promote education and collaborative research toward a cure for Dupuytren Disease.


Special Thanks
Thanks to donors who continue to pave the way for Foundation work. Fundraising is critical to our ongoing goal of providing research grants supporting work to crack the Dupuytren code. Particular thanks go to my mentor, Robert W Beasley MD, whose New York based Foundation for Hand Research recently underwent dissolution and made a generous distribution of assets to the Dupuytren Foundation. Large or small, financial support is both appreciated and necessary for Dupuytren Foundation work to continue.

Charles Eaton MD

Thanks for posting this! This is an exciting effort. I just went on their website and made a donation (tax-deductable for those of us in the U.S.).
