ALS Learning Series

Thursday, March 28 - 12 - 1 PM CST

About the Program: Join us for our March ALS Learning Series, where team members and people living with ALS will explore the crucial role of collaboration in delivering holistic care. Discover how multidisciplinary clinics can help people living with ALS to live longer and with a higher quality of life. From exploring treatment options to providing emotional support, our panel will illustrate how this approach significantly enhances the well-being of people living with ALS, their families, and caregivers. This webinar will also discuss the ALS Better Care Act (HR 5663/S.3258), which will enhance Medicare reimbursement for multidisciplinary clinics nationwide, improving care for people living with ALS. You’ll learn how you can get involved in supporting this legislation.

The Les Turner ALS Foundation is proud to offer this webinar at no cost to the ALS community. Thank you to the Gilbert & Jacqueline Fern Foundation, Biogen, & Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma America for sponsoring this webinar.
