A Shifting Paradigm: Translating Research into Treatment Approaches for ALS
Many providers lack knowledge regarding amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and may be unaware of available information. Arming providers with an expansive understanding is extremely important.

This multimodal educational program from BRAINWeek will have a positive impact on patient outcomes and aims to provide neurologists, primary care physicians, physical therapists, clinical pharmacists, physicians assistants, nurse practitioners, and other HCPs with an experience that fills the knowledge gaps surrounding ALS.
This activity is supported by an educational grant from Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma America, Inc.
