Telemedicine-based Home Spirometry

Monitoring respiratory function remains one of our highest priorities to allow timely treatment interventions. The SUNY Upstate Foundation supports our critical need for home-based respiratory testing through the Tim Green Endowment to Defeat ALS. Patients are able to minimize the need for travel in and out of clinic for respiratory testing.

ALS Association - Walk to Defeat ALS

SUNY Upstate participates every year in the walk, raising money and walking side-by-side with patients in our community.
