NDNG: ALS Task Force


The ALS Task Force (ALSTF) seeks to improve the care and quality of life for those affected by ALS. We will target this mission through two pathways:

  • By disseminating the latest advances in ALS knowledge to clinicians, patients, and caregivers
  • By promoting research to advance the understanding and treatment of ALS


The ALSTF will work towards this mission through the following outputs:

  • Conference courses and symposia
  • Presentations to the general public
  • Publications
  • Information and Education pages (IEP)
  • Collaborations both within and beyond the ALSTF
