“We are grateful to have the support of the Travelers Championship and Travelers Chairman Jay Fishman,” said HSC President and Chief Executive Officer Lynn Ricci. “Funds donated by this effort will be used to further expand our research and clinical trials work to individuals and families facing ALS.”

Each year, HSC cares for more than 250 Connecticut residents with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a progressive disorder that affects the function of nerves and muscle. Last August, Travelers Chairman Jay Fishman disclosed that he had been diagnosed with the disease.

HSC is the only facility in Connecticut that is part of the ALS Association’s national network of Certified Treatment Centers of Excellence, and it is also certified by the Muscular Dystrophy Association for ALS care. The ALS Clinic at HSC manages one of the largest research and clinical trial programs for ALS in New England.
