The Paulo Gontijo Institute has participate in the 26th edition of the “Global Action”
The event is in its 26th edition and was held on May 27, simultaneously in 27 Brazilian cities and in the Federal District. The objective of the IPG in the Global Action was to raise the awareness of the population about Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. During the event we talk about the topic using the sleep disorders as a hook, and the relation that they can have with the diagnosis of ALS.
The multidisciplinary IPG’s team, in partnership with Air Liquide / Vital Aire - company that supported the Institute to participate in the event - was in nine states (São Paulo, Rio Grande do Sul, Rio de Janeiro, Espirito Santo, Federal, Pernambuco, Paraná and Bahia). Using the theme "Sleep well does well," the professionals alerted the public about sleepping disorders and performed tests. Problems related to sleep may be related to Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and help to diagnose the disease.
1.128 people in the nine states, talked to our professionals e and 619 people received medical referral. See photos of the Global Action on our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/InstitutoPauloGontijo
