Celeste Graham, PT, and Doug Levine, PT, recently joined the physical therapy team of CureDuchenne Cares, a program designed to help patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

CureDuchenne Cares is a specialized physical therapy, education, and outreach training program for caregivers and health professionals who work with patients who have Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

A media release from CureDuchenne notes that, prior to joining the CureDuchenne team, Graham worked with San Diego County’s California Children Services program as liaison to the Muscle Disease Clinic at Rady Children’s Hospital, where she coordinated care for patients with Duchenne.

Levine, who currently owns Growing Places Therapy Services in Austin, Tex, has been the physical therapist for the Austin area Muscular Dystrophy clinic for the past 7 years and has been an active volunteer for MDA Summer Camp for the past 10 years.

“Celeste and Doug will be valuable assets to our organization, Duchenne families and the entire Duchenne community,” says Debra Miller, founder and CEO of CureDuchenne, in the release.

“Their experience will enable CureDuchenne Cares to expand our physical therapy training programs and workshops. Our aim is to provide the best therapy possible to thousands of children with Duchenne giving them a better chance of maintaining their mobility for as long as possible,” she adds.
