ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Progress

 

Support Groups

*As of March 12, 2020, we will be cancelling our in-person March Support Group meetings across the state. We are acutely aware that people with ALS are at an increased risk for respiratory problems associated with viral infections. Because of this risk and the care needs of many people with ALS, we are considering their primary caregivers as high risk as well. It is important for us to be increasingly cautious as a result. Please look for future Support Group updates from your Care Services Coordinators or on our social media sites (Facebook, Instagram & Twitter).
