In the big meetings of 2013 when we heard talk of winning the game with transformative game plans. We heard of lots of hope for scoring against ALS. We heard a lot, yet little was delivered.
Let's play some small-ball and go for some first downs before the end of the year. We can advance the ball in some very realistic ways.
1. Let's put heads together and come up with a searchable inventory of research projects. Let's treat ALS research like an investment portfolio that everyone should want to understand and, therefore, support.
2. Let's put heads together and share a calendar of activities pertinent to ALS. One calendar would help everyone be aware of events and conferences. One calendar would help organizations in scheduling.
Those are pretty simple plays.
We'll never win the game if we're not able to move the ball just 10 yards.
