ALS: Behind The Mystery
ALS is a rare, debilitating neurodegenerative disease that can affect anyone. We’ll meet a man who has been diagnosed with ALS and faces daily challenges associated with the rare disease. We’ll also hear from Dr. Steven Perrin, CEO and Chief Scientific Officer at the ALS Therapy Development Institute in Cambridge, Mass., who will explain the latest research in their dedicated efforts to seek a cure. It’s part of the Mystery Behind the Rare Disease series on the Balancing Act.
Don’t move! The Balancing Act is back with a new Behind the Mystery segment and an inside look at a Broadway sensation.
We're discussing Alport syndrome, a rare, genetic, and chronic kidney condition characterized by declining kidney function which can lead to end-stage kidney disease.
