Lou Gehrig's disease is a rare and incurable disease that destroys motor neurons in the brain and spinal cord. In addition to the multidisciplinary treatment system for ALS patients, Hanyang University Hospital runs monthly educational programs on the treatment and management of ALS and self-help management meetings for patients and their families.

The patient and family education program is divided into areas related to the symptoms of the disease, such as nutrition, respiration, rehabilitation, welfare, and daily management for each stage of progress, and provides lectures with experts in each field. They are actively conducting research activities to find out the causes and cures of these diseases.
