Neuromuscular Multidisciplinary Clinic responds to Ice Bucket Challenge

California Pacific Medical Center’s Forbes Norris MDA ALS Research Center challenged Stanford’s Neuromuscular Multidisciplinary Clinic to the Ice Bucket Challenge. Yesterday more than 30 people from the Neurosciences Department, the Rehabilitation Department, the construction team for the new Hoover Two building project, the Integrative Medicine team and the business development team joined the Neuromuscular Team to respond to the challenge. Neuromuscular Clinic Director, John W. Day, MD, PhD, said a few words about the need for ALS research funding and challenged several other teams to do the Ice Bucket Challenge. Stanford’s Neuromuscular Multidisciplinary clinic cares for ALS patients and their families and is involved in ALS research. For more information about ALS and the Ice Bucket Challenge visit
