ALS/MDN is the complex and multi-faceted disease of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis or, Motor Neurone Disease. The event was held in the style of a true town hall meeting, including members of ALS Hellas Association, and the wider ALS community in Greece, with the audience extending globally, through the live-streaming of the evening.
