ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Progress


Resource Groups

The Greater Philadelphia Chapter hosts Resource/Support Groups throughout our service region to provide an opportunity for patients, caretakers, families and friends to be mutually supportive, exchange practical information, and share their experiences. We also provide resource groups specifically for caregiver and bereavement support. All resource groups are free of charge for patients, caregivers and family members.

We offer ALS Bereavement Support Groups for those who have recently lost a loved one to ALS, as well as those further along in this journey. If you have questions, or wish to join a bereavement group, please contact Dr. Debby Derman at 215-643-7206 or

Some Resource Groups are now meeting in person, as well as offering remote access. Please contact the Group Facilitator in advance for additional information.
