Every year, hundreds of ALS advocates from across the country come together to advance public policies that will benefit people living with ALS and their families. From people courageously battling this disease every day and executive leaders representing The ALS Association's 39-chapter network to clinicians and medical care coordinators, the National ALS Advocacy Conference provides an opportunity for the entire ALS community to unite in Washington, D.C. Following a day and a half of trainings and general sessions, ALS advocates travel to Capitol Hill to share their stories with Congress.
