Talk to Defeat ALS - Your First ALS Clinic Visit

August 9, 2018

A diagnosis of ALS can be daunting and stressful. In this podcast, Alisa Brownlee discusses what to expect in your first visit to an ALS Association Treatment Center and how the clinic team works to make your experience less stressful so that you can get the care and resources you need. Alisa talks about which healthcare professionals you will meet, how to prepare for your first visit, asking questions, and what kind of follow up you and the care team will do after that visit. To learn more about the ALS Treatment Centers through The ALS Association Greater Philadelphia Chapter, visit and if you live outside of PA/NJ/DE visit to find a chapter and clinic near you.
