Mitochondrial Care Network

The MCN represents a group of physicians at medical centers across the country that have expertise and experience in providing coordinated, multidisciplinary care for patients with genetic mitochondrial disease. The effort is a collaboration between mitochondrial physicians in the Mitochondrial Medicine Society (MMS) and the US-based patient advocacy groups - United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation (UMDF) and Mito Action.
