Description

The Les Turner Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Foundation is a nonprofit organization that offers support to patients and families living with the day-to-day difficulties associated with ALS--also known as Lou Gehrig's disease. Services available include the Lois Insolia ALS Center, an out-patient clinic with a multi-disciplinary team, at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, Chicago, IL, a visiting nurse program; equipment and communication system banks; educational materials and programs; and support groups. The Foundation also supports scientific research on ALS; currently this research is being conducted at the Les Turner ALS Research Laboratory at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, where scientists are working to discover the cause of the disease and ultimately a cure. These experts in the field of ALS help both professionals and patients keep current with ALS research and patient care.
