Jennifer received the 2019 scholarship in ALS. The research she is conducting will give us insight into potential barriers to non-invasive ventilation for individuals with ALS, and allow for providers to feel more comfortable in treating breathing problems in these patients. Confronting these barriers will lead to prolonged survival and improved quality of life for patients.

"I feel extremely grateful and honored to receive this research award. I am excited to explore this area of needed research and hope that it will have a meaningful impact on those with ALS."
