The University of Illinois at Chicago is the site of a new MDA/ALS Center.

MDA’s ALS Division has designated the MDA clinic at the University of Illinois at Chicago as an MDA/ALS center. This brings the total number of these specialized clinics to 36.

MDA/ALS centers offer a multidisciplinary team approach for people with ALS, focusing on service and research, and offering the latest therapies. The centers also help people learn to better cope with the disease, and participate in ALS research projects.

The director of the new center in Chicago is neurologist Julie Rowin, associate professor in the Department of Neurology and Rehabilitation and director of the Electromyography Laboratory at the University of Illinois. Rowin conducts extensive research in the areas of ALS and myasthenia gravis.

A complete list of MDA/ALS centers and contact information is available at or by calling your local MDA office, (800) 572-1717.
