April 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As the leader for research in ALS, the devastating brain disorder also known as
Lou Gehrig's disease, Project A.L.S. has been selected by EHE International to raise awareness about ALS and related brain diseases in a 103-square foot window display in Rockefeller Plaza. The interactive Project A.L.S. exhibit debuts today in the major international thoroughfare, and will be available to the public for the month of April.
The participatory exhibit focuses on ALS, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and the closely related brain diseases that will affect 1 in 25 Americans by the year 2020. Scientists agree that if we can understand and treat ALS, we will have new insight into cures for the range of brain diseases. The display window, donated by EHE International, highlights the growing epidemic of brain disease by literally giving viewers a window into the human brain with information about brain disease and opportunities for visitors to participate in stopping its spread.
