Published and Updated – Resources for PALS

Our Patient Resources page has recently been updated to reflect the publication of a chapter on swallowing in Living with ALS, a resource housed on the ALS Association website. Dr. Emily Plowman and Ph.D. student Lauren Tabor are authors of this chapter which includes sections on strategies for safe swallowing and how to increase nutrition for people with ALS. Along with their co-author, Karen Martin at the South Texas ALS Clinic, Dr. Plowman and Lauren incorporate clinical expertise with relevant research to support an understanding of swallowing-related difficulties as well as options to be considered. Their chapter is one of eleven that discuss various topics relevant for PALS and their loved ones.
