Description:

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive,
neuromuscular degenerative disease that presents in
many forms, but ultimately will require full caregiver
support and lead to death. Given the various forms of
presentation, diagnosis of the disease is challenging.
While pharmacotherapy is still an under-developed
treatment, aggressive respiratory care and nutritional
support have been proven effective in the treatment of
and prolonging life in patients with ALS.


This program offers participants a unique opportunity
to hear from expert clinician leaders from the
Lois Insolia ALS Clinic at the Les Turner ALS
Center at Northwestern Medicine and the
Les Turner ALS Foundation. Attendees will be
introduced to the multidisciplinary care at the center
of advanced patient care and will hear from the health
professionals elongating and improving the quality of
life for ALS patients.
