This month we were able to connect with two very influential figures in the world of ALS. First we met with The ALS Association’s President and CEO, Calaneet Balas, who gave us a window into what the greater organization is working on, including how global research is funded and tracked. Calaneet is also the Chair of the Board for the International Alliance of ALS/MND Associations, so it was really interesting to discuss a range of topics with her.
That interview is followed by a phone conversation with Dr. Nathan Staff from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. Dr. Staff is deeply involved in ALS research and knows the ins and outs of that universe as well as anyone we’ve ever met.
