Chapter e-News, Vol. 55

Welcome to 2014! GWAC will be having some new events this year that we hope will pique everyone’s interest. Please read this eblast to find out more about them. Our rescheduled Arlene P. Steinberg Memorial Scholar Series is set for February 10. Hopefully the weather will be kind to us this time. Our lunch and learns will begin this month and we are hoping to fill our office space with members. Some of you may also be interested in our new Yoga class to be held on Friday mornings. We are trying to bring you programs that are new and different and that will get you more involved in our Chapter, but we also need people who are willing to chair future events. Please let me know if you would be able to do so. I look forward to seeing you at future GWAC functions.

Neuromuscular diseases
include Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease), Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's Disease, Myasthenia Gravis, Alzheimer's Disease and others. They are all caused by the breakdown of nerve cells leading to difficulty in moving and other disabilities. There is currently no cure for these devastating diseases.
