In complement to the groundbreaking research and tireless advocacy that The ALS Association supports on a national level, the Connecticut Chapter is working directly with patients here in Connecticut to improve access to treatment and quality of life. In 2022, we provided services to 400 people living with ALS and their families. To learn more about our Impact, please view our 2021/2022 Annual Report.
