FAQ – Growth & Positive Changes for Our ALS Community in Central & Southern Ohio

As of September 1, 2023, the Central & Southern Ohio Chapter and fourteen other prominent chapters will legally separate from the ALS Association. Full operational separation will be completed by January 31, 2024.

These 15 chapters represent approximately half of the ALS patient population, Certified Treatment Centers of Excellence, and ALS Multidisciplinary Clinics in the nation.

The 15 chapters are collaborating closely and will continue to maintain a robust network of information and resource sharing across the ALS community. Each one of the 15 chapters, including Central & Southern Ohio, is an independent organization that is well-positioned to continue effectively meeting the unique needs and responding to key priorities of the local communities that it serves. We will continue to function as a leader in the field, fostering innovation and state-of-the-art programs.

The following FAQ provides more detail on Central & Southern Ohio's separation from the ALS Association.

We will share updates as they develop. If you have feedback or questions, we invite you to email ALSohio@ALSohio.org and a member of our staff will get back to you as soon as possible.

Please note that our organization’s Tax ID Number is not changing, and will remain 31-1235704 going forward.
