The Dupuytren Research Group is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity working to improve treatment options for a common, yet little-known medical condition. Our key challenges are raising awareness, developing funding resources, and carrying out innovative new research. Our West Palm Beach office has two dedicated staff members working closely with Dr. Eaton to push our agenda forward.
