    As leaders in rehabilitation, the members of the Neurodegenerative Diseases Networking Group (NDNG) hope to address the needs of people with multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease in two important ways: By facilitating evidence-based practice for improved health, wellness, and quality of life; and promoting innovative research to identify ways in which these goals can be better accomplished through physical medicine and rehabilitation.
