Since its founding in 1950, the Muscular Dystrophy Association has become one of the nation's largest and best-known voluntary health agencies. MDA provides comprehensive medical services to tens of thousands of people with neuromuscular diseases at some 230 hospital-affiliated clinics across the country, including one locally at UCLA. The Association's worldwide research program, which funds some 400 individual scientific investigations annually, represents the largest single effort to advance knowledge of neuromuscular diseases and to find cures and treatments for them. In addition to funding ground-breaking research, MDA also funds local support groups and a summer camp for kids with muscular-wasting diseases at The Painted Turtle Camp in Lake Hughes. MDA is the first nonprofit recognized by the American Medical Association with a Lifetime Achievement Award for significant and lasting contributions to the health and welfare of humanity.
