6-13-11: The Mechanics of ALS

June 13, 2011 at 9:40 am Leave a comment

Dudley Clendinen is an award-winning author and journalist who lives here in Baltimore.  A former reporter and editorial writer for The New York Times, he found out in November, at age 66, that he has amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS, more popularly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.

There is no known cure for ALS, and once a person is diagnosed, they usually live between 1.5 to 3 years.

Over the past few months, Dudley has been speaking with Tom Hall about living with ALS.  In this conversation, they talk about the mechanics of the disease with his doctor, Jeffrey Rothstein, who is the Director of the Robert Packard Center for ALS Research at Johns Hopkins University.  He’s also a professor of neurology there.

You can listen to all of our conversations with Dudley Clendinen at this link.
