Mission Statement

The MDA National Task Force on Public Awareness is a voluntary advisory body of adults with neuromuscular diseases who are leaders in their communities. The task force was organized to promote the goals and programs of the Association, and to provide MDA with feedback relating to the needs of those it serves.

The Task Force's mission is to advise the Association on matters of importance to people with disabilities such as medical care, insurance, independent living, personal assistance services and pertinent legislation. It also fosters greater awareness of MDA's contributions to people with neuromuscular diseases, and the Association's central role in assisting those it serves to live rewarding, productive lives that are fully integrated into mainstream American society.

Description

MDA is the world’s leading nonprofit health organization sponsoring research seeking the causes of and effective treatments for neuromuscular diseases. MDA research grants currently are supporting more than 250 projects worldwide.
