Scott Mackler waged a courageous battle with ALS for well over 15 years.  Sadly, the manifestations of Lou Gehrig’s disease ended his brilliant research career on November 19th, 2013.  Even though Scott’s compassionate spirit and humanitarian efforts are sorely missed, his philanthropic contributions to those impacted by ALS continue to live on in his absence. The Scott A. Mackler, MD, PhD Assistive Technology Program creates access to assistive technology possible for hundreds of people with ALS in our Chapter’s region. Your participation can continue this success and provide life-altering support for those who need it most.
