Mission Statement

The Community Programs Department fosters awareness of MDA's efforts to make life better for people with neuromuscular diseases; increases appreciation of the abilities and ideas of those MDA serves; brings outstanding individuals affected by these diseases to public attention; and encourages active involvement of people with neuromuscular diseases in the community at large as well as in matters of public policy that are specifically of concern to those with disabilities.

Description

Since 1955, MDA has built bridges and knocked down barriers for youngsters with neuromuscular diseases by providing an unforgettable week at MDA summer camp. Campers say the week they spend at MDA camp is "the best week of the year."

MDA combats neuromuscular diseases through programs of worldwide research, comprehensive medical and community services, and far-reaching professional and public health education. With national headquarters in Tucson, AZ.
