January ALS Learning Series: Why Your Participation in the National ALS Registry Matters
January 19 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
About the Program
Join us for our January ALS Learning series with Dr. Paul Mehta to learn how the National ALS Registry helps advance research. Dr. Mehta will discuss how to join the National ALS Registry, what information they collect and why, and the type of research the registry is conducting. A Q&A session will follow the discussion.
ALS research depends on people living with ALS to join the National ALS Registry. Every individual’s story can contribute to our understanding of the disease, its causes, and how to fight it.
The Les Turner ALS Foundation is proud to offer this webinar at no cost to the ALS community. Thank you to Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma America for sponsoring this webinar.
