Past AMND soirees for ALS have drawn top athletes and celebs including Billy Baldwin, Caroline Rhea, Edie Falco, Adam Graves, David Cone, Curtis Martin, Nick Swisher, Richard Kind and Tommy John.
AMND has fielded a team for this year's Fiesta and is sending volunteers to help as well, according to Amalia Sirica, a senior at Duke University who is on the AMND board and helped stage a fundraiser in Durham, NC last fall for Duke's ALS Clinic, headed by Dr.
AMND was regressed on program factors, participant characteristics, and interactions between the indicator for "education savers" and each of the other independent variables.
Table 2 presents the bivariate analysis of AMND by some subgroups of program and participant characteristics.
Table 3 displays the results from the regression analysis on AMND.
Three of the four program factors were positively related to AMND.
When other factors in the regression constant, AMND was higher for Caucasians than for African Americans.
Analyses show that variables related to "education savers" (the stand-alone indicator and the interaction terms) explained about 2 percent of the variance in AMND.
49 more AMND for any participant, regardless of whether they were an "education saver", an additional hour was associated with an additional $0.
Among participant demographic factors, savings for postsecondary education moderated the association of gender with AMND.
Similarly, although married participants on the whole in ADD had higher AMND than not-married participants (p-value of 0.
Because these two variables appear in multiple places in the regression model with interactions (see Table 3), evaluating how they affect AMND is not straightforward.
