Mississippi Metabolics Foundation (MMF) was founded to raise awareness, educate, and provide support to those living or caring for someone with genetic metabolic disorders/inborn errors of metabolism (IEM). We advocate for the continued expansion and implementation of Newborn Screening Programs and access to available resources for caregivers/patients. MMF promotes and supports further advancements in legislation, research, trials and studies, therapies, targeted treatments, and eventual cures for metabolic disorders, IEM’s, and all rare genetic diseases. We hope to increase the community involvement in Mississippi for rare genetic metabolic disorders and help families navigate their rare disease journey.
