To our ALS Community,
Your health and safety is our top priority. Out of an abundance of caution, the ALS Association Evergreen Chapter has restructured our programs to keep you safe. Chapter staff are reaching out and connecting with the families we serve through phone, email, and video conferencing. We are working together to ensure that all people with ALS have the opportunity to connect to Chapter services. We communicate frequently with all staff members to ensure that they are aware of the latest developments, prevention techniques, and most importantly the needs of people with ALS.
All support groups are currently held on the free video conferencing site Zoom. Take a few minutes and sign up for Zoom prior to your first group meeting. After you have signed up, click the link below "Find a Support Group Near You" to find your support group. We are also offering virtual drop-in meetings with a care coordinator to address any concerns, questions, or just chat. We are available Monday through Friday from 9 to 11 a.m. PST. Click this LINK to join.
We continue to evaluate all Chapter events as circumstances change. All staff continue to work remotely and are well connected. Thank you for your understanding as we continue through the Covid-19 health crisis. Please contact your local care services coordinator if you have any questions or concerns.
The ALS Association Evergreen Chapter offers comprehensive support for persons diagnosed with ALS, their families, and caregivers. We help you cope with the day-to-day challenges of living with ALS by providing information, resources, and referrals.

The ALS Association is at the forefront of public policy working to improve the lives of people living with ALS and their caregivers. Our federal advocacy work focuses on educating and mobilizing all members of Congress in a nonpartisan fashion to achieve the mission of The ALS Association: to discover treatments and a cure for ALS, and to serve, advocate for, and empower people affected by ALS to live their lives to the fullest. In this webinar, recorded March 23, 2021, we highlight recent legislative successes and 2021 priorities. We also discuss the importance of building relationships with legislators. Our esteemed presenters are Abram Bieliauskas, Associate Director of Government Affairs at the ALS Association and Rebecca Alcorn, Legislative Assistant to Representative Mike Crapo (R-ID).

Join Dr. Michael Elliott, Medical Director for the ALS Clinic at the Swedish Neuroscience Institute, for an update on a promising new drug by Amylyx. AMX0035 is an oral therapy dissolved in water that combines two existing drugs, sodium phenylbutyrate and taurursodiol. Trial results indicate the drug cocktail slowed ALS progression in a statistically meaningful and clinically relevant way and that the drug combination is generally safe and well-tolerated. The ALS Association and I AM ALS have launched a petition calling on the FDA and Amylyx Pharmaceuticals to bring AMX0035 to market as soon as possible.*Original air date 10/19/20 Watch the recording of the seminar.
