Between March 12th and April 12th, the Paulo Gontijo Institute (IPG), in partnership with Royal Philips, through the Philips Foundation, held the road trip VAMOS! Vivendo com ELA (LETS GO! Living with ALS). The goals were to increase the society awareness about the disease and provide free care to patients, families, people with ALS symptoms and health professionals.
A total of 1,020 people were attended and registered, and in addition, there were numerous family visits, where only one patient was registered. The impact generated by the press was also significant: 1.3 million people affected by media informations about the project.
