Below is a list of the muscular dystrophies. Choose one to focus on for your Assignment. Provide detailed information, in your own words using quotes sparingly, describing the features of a specific form of muscular dystrophy, including causes, symptoms, etc. Directly cited and quoted materials should be used sparingly, as these do not indicate your understanding of the content of your submission.
