What can you do to #ChallengeALS


ALS Connections

Our Chapter offers monthly support group meetings to provide information about ALS and the various resources we offer and to allow our patients to network with others affected by ALS. Meetings are open to persons with ALS, their families, caregivers and friends. For questions about ALS Connections meetings, call (800) 891-3746, ext. 3 and select the care services coordinator in your area.
