The Eleanor and Lou Gehrig ALS Center provides comprehensive care to individuals and families with ALS, PLS and related forms of motor neuron disease (MND). Our multi-disciplinary team of ALS physicians and associated healthcare professionals offers compassionate care to ALS/MND patients and families, and provides the resources necessary to meet the evolving challenges of living with motor neuron disease. Research activities - including genome analysis and clinical trials - are integrated into the ALS Center clinics to give individuals the opportunity to participate in the fight against ALS/MND. Our personalized approach to patient care offers knowledge, understanding and hope.
