The 2015 National ALS Advocacy Day & Public Policy Conference was a HUGE success! Thank you to all ALS advocates who joined us in DC this May and those who participated virtually.
Remember, advocacy day is not one day out of the year. Please stand with us to continue to make a tangible impact in the lives of those battling this disease.

Government ALS Research: Learn how government programs, such as the National ALS Registry and the ALS Research Program at the Department of Defense, are advancing the search for the cause, treatment and cure for ALS.
