When one of NMD United’s founders, Alex Landis, died suddenly on June 28, 2015, a number of donations were made to our organization in her honor and memory. NMD United chose to use these donations in the most unique way possible. The Board established the Alex Landis Empowerment Fund (ALEF), a grant programs that helps adults living with NMDs by providing temporary relief in a different area of need each calendar year.
NMD United Virtual University is the place for adults with neuromuscular disabilities to discuss important issues relevant to their lives and independence. We host discussions on an as-needed, as-requested basis. Our recordings are 1-3 hours long and cover adult content.
NMD United proudly sponsors Stop EVV, a grassroots campaign led by individuals with disabilities and personal care service providers. Stop EVV aims to raise awareness surrounding the civil rights violations against disabled people through the use of Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) systems.
