February 9th: Information day on the nerve disease ALS
About 8,000 people in Germany are affected by the nervous disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). The DZNE and Bonn University Hospital invite experts, patients and other interested parties to an information day on Saturday, 9 February, on the subject of progressive nerve paralysis. In addition, the Motoneuronambulanz of the Bonn University Clinic for Neurodegenerative Diseases and Gerontopsychiatry, one of the few specialised centres in Germany, will introduce itself. Bruno Schmidt and his association "ALS - Alle Lieben Schmidt e.V." will be awarded the Hertie Prize for commitment and self-help in the amount of 7,500 euros by the Hertie Foundation as part of the event.
The meeting is free of charge and takes place from 9 to 15 o'clock in the DZNE (House 99), Sigmund-Freud-Str. 27, on the Venusberg Campus.
During the event, photographs will be taken which will be used for documentation and post-reporting. There is no entitlement to remuneration. Information on data protection can be found at https://www.dzne.de/en/data-protection/. Representatives of the press are also invited.
