Alpha-1 Global

Alpha-1 Global

Alpha-1 Global seeks to:

  • Build cohesive communication between the various Alpha-1 associations and organizations.
  • Supply up-to-date information about research and the latest Alpha-1 developments around the world.
  • Provide access to valuable resources and educational materials in a variety of languages.
  • Conduct educational Alpha-1 seminars online.
  • Encourage you to actively participate in the online discussion platform, by contributing your knowledge, questions, experiences and ideas.

The site,, serves as a hub for global communication. In a year, this site will probably look very different, as people around the world will have had a chance to add their thoughts, share ideas, and evaluate the need for expansion into different languages. We also hope to develop a comprehensive communication structure with our network of association leaders and provide additional awareness and campaign resources.
