It's Thyroid Awareness Month!

Sleepy looks at occasionally. It's full of good healthcare information and advocacy information provided by the large pharmaceutical manufacturers. One of those companies could well be the employer of the smart mind that will figure out ALS.
Featured on the PhRMA home page this month we learn that it's Thyroid Awareness Month and there is a link to an informative podcast on thyroid health.

Here is a link to all kinds of disease-specific podcasts provided on that site (go ahead and click)

Notice that anything is missing?

Where is ALS?

A disease that is a matter of life and death isn't there. Perhaps it didn't make the list because there aren't any drugs that really help ALS. Perhaps there aren't any drugs that really help ALS because people in the industry don't realize what a mystery and opportunity ALS is.
It would be nice to see the people who decided that May would be ALS Awareness Month to help get the word out as well as the thyroid advocates did.
