Advocacy time

I’ve been invited to serve on the board of the ALS-Association Public Policy Committee and have gladly accepted.  I’ll be attending the ALS national advocacy conference in DC next week and hope to play a very active role. First, I have a lot to learn about the agenda and strategy for lobbying for changes in laws and funding of ALS research. Stay tuned.
