Last month, PRC was in Washington, D.C., as part of The ALS Association’s 2017 Advocacy Conference.
Over 600 ALS advocates and people living with the disease came to share their stories to their Congressional representatives and urge them to act on behalf of the ALS community.
PRC is proud to sponsor The ALS Association as they continue to work towards finding treatments and a cure.
