ALS Association CEO Accepts Patient’s Invitation to Join ALS Believe Team

After patient challenges Association to set a deadline to cure the disease

DURHAM, N.C. (PRWEB) July 31, 2015

An ALS patient who is inviting a unique group to collaborate can now add ALS Association CEO Barbara Newhouse to his team.

“That Barbara is open to trying something so unique is very promising,” says Chris Rosati who suffers from ALS and created the Believe Team. “If everyone on this team believes there’s a better way, then I bet we’ll do something special.”

“The ALS Association is ‘all in’ when it comes to finding a treatment and cure for this disease,” said Newhouse. “Chris’ passion is inspiring and his urgency is crucial in this fight. The Believe Team is a positive force for this community and we’re proud to be a part of it.”

In addition to Newhouse, the director of the Duke ALS Clinic, entrepreneurs, executives from CRO and nonprofit, as well as several persons with ALS have all accepted invitations. Representatives from large and small pharma and venture capital will also be invited. The only person to not respond was Richard Moscicki, MD from the FDA.

“I intentionally invited folks who know how the system works, as well as those who don’t care how it works,” says Rosati. “The reliance on science has not worked. So let’s innovate outside the lab.”

About the Believe Team

The ALS Believe Team is part of the #by2021 initiative which began with an ALS patient’s video message challenging ALSA’s CEO to set a deadline for a cure. The Believe Team is collaborating on a mock scenario patient Chris Rosati referenced in his article Audacity. For more information visit http://by2021.org/believe_team/.

About the ALS Association

The ALS Association is the only national non-profit organization fighting Lou Gehrig’s Disease on every front. By leading the way in global research, providing assistance for people with ALS through a nationwide network of chapters, coordinating multidisciplinary care through certified clinical care centers, and fostering government partnerships, The Association builds hope and enhances quality of life while aggressively searching for new treatments and a cure.

Added Director of Sales & Marketing Nathan Karsten, “Hilton Chicago/Oak Brook Hills is committed to offering guests a full-rounded experience. We give a unique destination resort feel for Chicago, highlighted by first-rate amenities and now world-class golf options year-round.”

Simulator Program

Designed by award-winning architect Dick Nugent, the multi-tiered tees and pristine greens of Willow Crest Golf Club present a new test each time a golfer steps up to swing. With the advent of the Simulator Program, golfers can test themselves on over 80 international courses all from one location, whether winter or summer, rain or shine. Using the most advanced high-definition cameras and real-time club head and ball tracking technology to record shot data, the full-swing simulators by Foresight Sports give a true-to-life virtual experience and an honest evaluation of every shot.

The new Simulator Program at the Learning and Performance Center at Willow Crest Golf Club allows golfers to practice any aspect of their game, including drives, bunker shots, short pitches and putts. When the ball is struck, it is captured and accurately represented in one of the championship courses. Golfers can analyze shots, improve swing skills, or play the world’s best and most exclusive courses in beautiful 4K resolution. The simulators are available for leisure play as well as instruction or club fitting. Group and individual packages are offered, and the development of off-season leagues is in the plan (more details TBA).

Dawsonville, Georgia (PRWEB) July 31, 2015

Georgia SoftWorks announces the addition of Sticky Topics to the GSW Telnet Server for Windows Support Forums to provide another method of customer support.

A sticky topic is an article that is placed at the top of a page and does not get bumped down as new topics are added, making them easy to find. Forums typically use sticky topics for special announcements, guidelines and FAQs.

“As of now we have two sticky topics uploaded. The first is on utilizing the Session Administrator, the second explains how to use .txt logs to troubleshoot connection issues,” said Douglas. “We plan to regularly add more as well.”

The Georgia SoftWorks Support Forums provide a community of help to users who have questions regarding the GSW products. The GSW Support Team frequents the boards to offer support and provide answers. GSW announcements can also be seen on the Forum page.
