Therapeutic vaccines for ALS in the spotlight

Vaccines to hopefully arrest progression of ALS is the topic of discussion April 3 at the Coast Bastion Inn.

An RSVP is required, so please contact Heather Bemister at the ALS Society of B.C. before March 27 at support@alsbc.ca or 1-800-708-3228, ext. 231.

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a rapidly progressive, invariably fatal neurological disease that attacks the nerve cells (neurons) responsible for controlling voluntary muscles.
