Default ALS MND Symposium - Patient Fellows Program

For anybody with ALS MND who is interested in the science and can get to Glasgow, the Patient Fellows Program is now open for applications...

https://alsmndpatientfellows.wordpress.com/

The fellowship covers symposium fees and hotel and a little misc.

Thanks to ALSTDI, RobG for coordinating this.

This is the second year for this program. It's an important step in getting actual experts living with ALS there with the scientists at the largest annual gathering on ALS research. You can see some comments from last year's Fellows on the website.

I hope some folks here will apply, and thanks if you can help spread the word.

Thanks! You might want to update the bit that says travel to and from Boston!

The MNDA symposia are great experiences. I have attended 2 and Glasgow will be my third. The scientific sessions are awesome if you are into hard science. There is a clinical track too and then poster sessions. It is a busy 3 days!

If you can get to Glasgow in December and have an interest in the science, this is a wonderful opportunity.

Last year's participant thoughts/observations can be seen on the website. People who have the most expertise in ALS, those who actually have it, are an essential addition to these scientific meetings. Please help spread the word. Thanks.
