As one of The ALS Association's leading chapters, the Greater New York Chapter plays a major role in promoting the mission to lead the fight to cure and treat ALS.

In this group we seek to connect people on LinkedIn and keep them informed about chapter events, initiatives, research news and other important information about ALS.

The ALS Association symbolizes the hopes of people everywhere that Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis will one day be a disease of the past - relegated to historical status, studied in medical textbooks, conquered by the dedication of thousands who have worked ceaselessly to understand and eradicate this perplexing killer.

Until that day comes, The ALS Association relentlessly pursues its mission to help people living with ALS and to leave no stone unturned in search for the cure of the progressive neurodegenerative disease that took the life and name of Baseball Legend Lou Gehrig.

As the only not-for-profit voluntary health agency dedicated solely to the fight against ALS, we direct the largest privately-funded research enterprise engaged to uncover the mystery of a disease that affects as many as 30,000 annually. With more than 5,600 people diagnosed each year - an average of 15 new cases each day - our mission is urgent. The search for answers knows no bounds.

Mission: Our Mission is to lead the fight to cure and treat ALS through global, cutting edge research, and to empower people with Lou Gehrig's Disease and their families to live fuller lives by providing them with compassionate care and support.

Who We Serve: The Greater New York Chapter serves ALS patients and families throughout New York City, Long Island, Westchester County, the Hudson Valley, and Northern & Central New Jersey. « less
