Message from MDA’s President and CEO

Dear Friends,

In the short time I’ve served as MDA’s President and CEO, I’ve seen up close how progress in fighting muscle disease is being fueled by MDA’s mission…and leadership. Today, those affected by neuromuscular diseases experience longer life spans and improved quality of life. Decades of MDA research and clinical care investment are paying off, with more breakthroughs on the horizon.
