Once diagnosis is confirmed by a neurologist, the ALS clinical team directed by Lora L. Clawson, MSN, CRNP creates a clinical care plan after a thorough assessment by all team members.
This world-respected medical destination for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) patients is not a part of the Packard Center, although Clinic patients often sign up for studies, or clinical trials, that test potential Center-derived therapies. The Packard Center does not diagnose or provide clinical care to patients. It does, does work cosely with the Clinic to help promote their work, support clinical trials as well as basic research.
