Educational Webinars

In partnership with The ALS Association, NEALS offers live webinars for people with ALS, caregivers and the broader ALS community. Topics include updates on clinical trials, best practices for clinical care, and current research efforts in ALS causes and treatments. Our webinars also offer participants the opportunity to ask questions directly of the experts running clinical trials and conducting research activities.

ALS Clinical Research Learning Institutes: Empowering People with ALS to be Research Ambassadors

Presenter: Richard Bedlack, MD, PhD, Duke ALS Clinic
In this webinar, we will review the background that led to the creation of ALS Clinical Research Learning Institutes, show what these look like, and detail how patients and families can apply to participate. Several graduates of the program (called Research Ambassadors) will show firsthand how they are using the knowledge they gained through the curriculum to improve ALS research for everyone.
