The Muscular Dystrophy Association is a voluntary health agency working to defeat neuromuscular diseases, including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), through programs of worldwide research, comprehensive health and community services, and far reaching professional and public health education. The Association's programs are funded almost entirely by individual private contributors in the local community.
In addition to funding ground-breaking research, Hampton Roads MDA maintains two clinics serving those with neuromuscular diseases including a child’s clinic at the Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters and an adult clinic at Sentara Ambulatory Center in downtown Norfolk. There is also a summer camp for children ages 6-17 with muscle-wasting diseases in Wakefield, VA. For more information, go to www.mda.org or call the local office at 757-420-3172.
