It Takes a Village

Treatment to Patients through an Engaged Community

Barbara Newhouse, President & CEO, ALS Association

In June 2014, Barbara Newhouse joined The ALS Association as President and CEO, just two months prior to the start of the Ice Bucket Challenge. This challenge brought unprecedented national and international attention to the disease and $115 million to The Association.  Since that time, she has consulted with ALS patient groups, ALS Association Chapters and its national Board of Trustees to develop the most effective strategy to translate this success into supporting the mission of The Association.
