Lois Insolia ALS Clinic of The Les Turner ALS Research and Patient Center
In 1986, the Les Turner ALS Foundation and Northwestern established the Lois Insolia ALS Clinic. This clinic offers total care and support of people with ALS, their families, and caregivers. During a visit, patients meet with several members of the multidisciplinary team, which includes five neurologists, two pulmonologists, and a team of experts that provide genetic counseling, occupational therapy, speech therapy, respiratory therapy, dietetic counseling, and the coordination of clinical trial studies.
Clinic physicians and staff take all the time needed to explain the disease and current research to patients and their families. In addition, the team can take the time to intervene for symptoms such as difficulty with speech, swallowing, weight loss, excess salivation, sleeping, breathing, activities of daily life, mobility, or pain.
