News Media Services

News Media Services is a dedicated resource site developed for news media and journalists. This site is an essential information link for members of the news media who are developing stories about amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and the work of The ALS Association.

The ALS Association's Communications Department assists the media in reporting on the many dimensions of ALS by coordinating interviews with an array of Association experts in research, patient care, advocacy and public awareness and by providing information about the disease and The Association in a timely manner that is sensitive to breaking news and deadlines.

News Media Services is designed as a central access point for the media, with links to key areas available on The ALS Association website. The site provides the latest news releases and a searchable news archive for previously-released material.
