The Vincina Protocol ALS Project Online Media Kit and website development is coming along. We’ve completed the initial stage of designing and creating content for the WordPress blog website. We’ve also created a LinkedIn company page, Twitter and Facebook Pages which are being updated weekly. Executive Director Michael Helfinstine, of Conneaut, Ohio (Ashtabula County) is being trained by Cheryl Dickson-Walker and his daughter-in-law, Shannon Helfinstine on managing content on the social media sites.
Today, Cheryl is finishing up writing Mike’s biography for the website. The information on the website will be used to populate a printed media kit, for his presentation to an MDA banquet tomorrow. Cheryl will also be writing a short speech for him to deliver, summarizing the Vincina Protocol Project and making the connection between finding a cause and cure for ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) and Muscular Dystrophy and other motor neuron diseases. It will be a busy day, but we will ‘Git ‘Er Dun’!
