Resources for Neurologists
The ALS Association Greater Chicago Chapter works to ensure that neurology professionals are in the know about our organization and the programs and services we offer free of charge to Persons Living with ALS, their families, caregivers and healthcare team.
Practice Parameter information can be found here.
The National ALS Registry
We encourage every Person Living with ALS to register with the National ALS Registry. The National ALS Registry may be the single largest ALS research project ever created. It is designed to identify ALS cases from throughout the United States. The Registry is collecting critical information about the disease that may improve care for people with ALS and help us learn what causes the disease, how it can be treated and even prevented.
Learn more about the National ALS Registry today, and find out how this research can help, including by informing people living with ALS about new and ongoing clinical trials. Visit http://registry.alsa.org for more info.
ALS Association Greater Chicago Chapter Care Services
We are available to provide our Care Services free of charge to ALS patients. Once your patient registers with our chapter, the appropriate Care Services Coordinator will contact him/her. Please note that patients must have a confirmed diagnosis of ALS to be eligible for services. If official diagnosis or second opinion is needed, appointments are available through our ALS Multidisciplinary Clinics.
