As we look back on 2023, ALS New Mexico continued the hybrid programs and services that fit our patient community during the pandemic while also exploring opportunities to expand. Not only did our programmatic options increase, offering a rich and robust selection of educational workshops and support groups, but our team continued working around the clock through virtual platforms to keep the lines of communication open. We provided continuity of care to 113 people with ALS through ongoing virtual support, equipment training, multidisciplinary treatment options, and respite care grants.

Community Awareness

Our entire commitment revolves around furthering our mission to uncover effective treatments and, ultimately, eliminate ALS. This highlights the crucial role of supporting outstanding ALS research through funding. Our focus is on financing the most promising research initiatives and actively fostering innovative partnerships that span government, industry, academia, and other nonprofit organizations. Additionally, we dedicate resources to cultivating emerging talent, empowering young scientists to spearhead innovation.

Collaboration serves as the foundation of our research program. We collaborate with academia, industry, government, and other nonprofit organizations, taking the lead in fostering enduring partnerships among researchers across all sectors. This results in the global sharing of data, protocols, and research samples, accelerating progress in ALS research.
