Clinical Trial Information

CCALS ALS One Rides to Trials

Compassionate Care ALS takes a comprehensive approach to integrating our CARE with research institutions, ALS clinics and hospitals. We work to ensure appropriate care and education for those individuals and families who are newly diagnosed as well as those currently enrolled in clinical trials. We also provide information to those interested in existing trials and those who wish to be informed about research efforts. We work with our current clients to connect them with clinical trials at ALS ONE partner organizations.

For clinical trials occurring at our ALS ONE partners, Massachusetts General Hospital, ALS TDI and UMass Medical Center we offer our families along with ALS ONE partner families rides to trials in our handicapped accessible vans. For more information about our transportation program, please contact Shannon Carey at or (508) 444-6775.
