The ALS Association and Option Care Webinar Series: Enteral Nutrition Support for Individuals Living with ALS

Learn how enteral nutrition supports the nutrition needs of thousands of people every day

Sometimes, a medical condition like ALS can make it so that eating and drinking isn’t enough to provide the nutrition you need. When this happens, your healthcare provider may decide to give you additional nutrition support through tube feeding, which is also called enteral nutrition support. The webinar will be made available December 19th and 20th, please pre-register to attend by using links below.

Option Care has been providing enteral nutrition support, to people of all ages, in the home for nearly 40 years.

Tuesday, December 19th from 3:00 4:30 pm EST:
