Charcot-Marie-Tooth Association marks September for awareness

The Charcot-Marie-Tooth Association (CMTA) has announced plans for National Charcot-Marie-Tooth disorder Awareness Month in September 2011.

The CMTA will host local, national, and global events to raise awareness of this degenerative neuromuscular disease. CMT Global Day is scheduled for September 24th, while Support and Action Group Day will take place on September 10th.

“Following the success of last year’s CMT Awareness Week, we wanted to dedicate an entire month’s worth of activities to raise awareness for this serious disease,” said David Hall, CEO of the CMTA.

Based in Glenolden, PA, the CMTA is a national nonprofit organization that aims to provide reliable information, support services, and resources to families of children with CMT, adults with CMT, and the health care professionals who work with them.
