ALS Advocacy Fly-In a Huge Success, Lead Up to National ALS Advocacy Conference

Held March 20-21, the annual ALS Advocacy Fly-In was very successful, as The ALS Association’s executives, staff, and board members acted boldly to fight for a cure for ALS.

On March 20, Fly-In attendees heard presentations from numerous speakers, including Mark Vieth from CRD Associates, Dr. Steve Landers from the Visiting Nurse Association Health Group, Inc., and leaders from The ALS Association’s Iowa and Greater Philadelphia chapters.

On March 21, despite about four inches of snow falling in Washington, D.C., more than 130 productive congressional meetings took place. The slideshow below includes photos from some of those meetings.

While the voices of the ALS community were surely heard on Capitol Hill during the Fly-In, that was just a start. In a few weeks, close to 600 advocates will join forces at the 2018 National ALS Advocacy Conference to learn about the latest ALS research, network, and share their stories with members of Congress.
