Charcot-Marie-Tooth Association (CMTA) is a 501(c)(3) national voluntary health organization that functions as an educational resource for people with Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, their families, medical professionals, the educational community, and the general public. Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease is a genetic neurological disorder characterized by weakness and atrophy of muscles first in the legs and, later, in the arms and hands. Founded in 1983, the association acts as an advocate for people with Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease by raising awareness and encouraging public and private agencies and private industry to fund and support medical research. The association acts as a liaison between the research community and people with this disorder. It also organizes and encourages the formation of local chapters and support groups. The organization produces educational materials including brochures, a bi-monthly newsletter, a book on CMT and the CMT Facts series.
