Join a Support Group
ALS Arizona has multiple support groups offered in-person by region or online. Join one today and start connecting with others in the ALS community!
ALS Arizona focuses on state and federal advocacy for research, health & long-term care, and caregiver support. The ALS Community's involvement in advocacy has led to increased federal funding for ALS research at the NIH and federal funding for ALS research through the Department of Defense.
The ALS Association Capital Office organizes The ALS Association's National Advocacy Day and Public Policy Conference each year. This event is the ALS community's only opportunity to join together to educate Members of Congress on the importance of stepping up the fight to conquer ALS through research care and support.
We are the largest private funder of ALS research worldwide, and our efforts have led to some of the most promising and significant advances in the field. So far we have committed more than $122 million to research. Thanks to the donations raised during the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, we're now spending three times more than on ALS Research than before summer 2014.
Collaboration is the cornerstone of our research program. We partner with academia, industry, government, and other nonprofit organizations and lead by spurring long-lasting collaborations among researchers across all sectors, leading to globally shared data, protocols, and research samples to accelerate research progress.
