"Intimacy and ALS..."

Welcome to Connecting ALS. In this episode, we discuss intimacy in relationships where ALS is present with Dr. Alair Altiero of Penn State’s Hershey Medical Center.

This week, Mike and Jeremy bring in an expert to help cover a topic that isn’t always easy to discuss in a clinical setting; intimacy and ALS. Dr. Alair Altiero is a mental health professional who works in the ALS clinic at the Hershey Medical Center in Pennsylvania. Her experience in addressing issues related to both physical and emotional intimacy with couples facing ALS carries a robust discussion around a sensitive subject. 

Quick note, this episode does feature some adult content as we are covering the topic of intimacy.
