Muscular Dystrophy Association of Baltimore

Nonprofit or community organization

Last modified: March 15, 2012, 12:56 PM

Description

The Muscular Dystrophy Association is a voluntary health agency created in 1950 -- a dedicated partnership between scientists and concerned citizens aimed at conquering neuromuscular diseases that affect more than a million Americans.

MDA combats neuromuscular diseases through programs of worldwide research, comprehensive medical and community services, and far-reaching professional and public health education. We sponsor 215 hospital-affiliated clinics and support nearly 400 research projects around the world. In fact, MDA supports more research on neuromuscular diseases than any other private-sector organization in the world.

The Association's comprehensive service program includes medical examinations and referral services, flu shots, support groups, MDA summer camps for youngsters as well as assistance with purchase of wheelchairs, leg braces and communication devices. The Association's programs are funded almost entirely by individual private contributors. MDA seeks no government grants, United Way funding or fees from those it serves. .
