Please spread the word about our MND Registry. The Registry is a unique effort to gather data about MND and similar neurological disorders in India, which can then help us understand more details about the cause, treatment, and care for the condition. Thus, making sure the Registry reaches as many people as possible across India is vital for this research program to succeed so that more people get an opportunity to take part in it.

You can help by sharing it on your social media
