A one-day, online forum about the latest research toward making ALS a treatable, not terminal disease.
If an ALS diagnosis has changed your life or the life of someone you care about, you already know that research is our best opportunity to change the course of the disease. But what is ALS research accomplishing, and how will it make a difference in the future?
We’ve brought together members of Canada’s world-class community of ALS researchers and an international special guest to answer these questions and many others. On Wednesday, August 10, they’ll be speaking about their work in a day-long online research forum that’s free to access and open to all.
We hope you’ll join us. Participation is easy – all you need is a computer with an internet connection, and audio capabilities via a telephone or computer. Just follow these steps:
1. Register online. Advance registration is recommended, because limited spots are available. Once you register, you'll receive a confirmation email with more information.
2. Check out the agenda (available on the registration page or in the email you'll receive upon registration) and find the sessions of greatest interest to you.
3. On August 10 log on using the information you received in your confirmation email. You can attend as many or as few sessions as you like, and you can return throughout the day as your schedule allows.
At the ALS Society of Canada and the ALS Societies across Canada, thousands of donors make it possible for us to fund the best research in the country with the most promise to slow down ALS or even stop it. We invite you to gain a sneak peek into the country’s ALS laboratories, and to learn how today’s research could lead to tomorrow’s treatment so that one day soon, ALS will be a treatable, not terminal disease.
