Day 1!

The Symposium has begun!

I’m so excited to attend the 23rd International Symposium on ALS/MND!  This is my first time attending the conference and I’m elated that it’s here in Chicago (one of my favorite cities). I have volunteered with persons with ALS for the past seven years, volunteered with various ALS organizations (like the ALS Association of Georgia), and completed my own ALS research through the Emory University’s Department of Anthropology.  My background is very pALS and quality of life focused; thus, my blog post will be focused on more of the health care sessions.

I’m looking forward to blogging on the conference!
