Centers of Excellence

The goal of the MSA Center of Excellence program is to provide access to the best possible and easily accessible multi-disciplinary clinical care and supporting services for individuals affected by Multiple System Atrophy (MSA) and their families through a geographically diverse network of local and/or regional clinical centers.


What are the Multiple System Atrophy Centers of Excellence?

In an effort to coordinate care with both clinical and social services, the Centers of Excellence (COEs or Centers) will provide professional and lay education in the areas they serve, will be involved in and inform patients of MSA research, and collaborate with The MSA Coalition in its efforts to continually improve the lives of those affected by MSA.


Centers of Excellence Objectives

+ Gold Standard Care

To establish a US standard for best practice of comprehensive, multi-disciplinary care, and to increase access to these necessary services for patients with MSA.

+ Reputable Institutions

To designate and support institutions that excel with regard to knowledge and expertise with MSA patient and family care, establishment of a multi-disciplinary care team, education and outreach to their local community and allied health partners, and offer opportunities for participation in MSA clinical research.

+ Support the Mission

To support The MSA Coalition in its mission to improve quality of life and bring hope to those affected by MSA through enhanced care, support, community, education, and research.
