Dr. Andrew Eisen

Vancouver, British Columbia

We are honouring Dr. Andrew Eisen today for his immeasurable contributions in BC to the field of neuromuscular medicine. He established the first ALS Clinic in Western Canada in the early 1980’s at Vancouver General Hospital and was a founding director of the ALS Society of BC over thirty years ago. His unwavering support and consistent guidance of patients, families and caregivers, through the ALS Society has truly had an impact on the quality of life for those in our province who deal with ALS. His legacy in the ALS community is immense. From pioneering research to teaching to training and mentoring the next generation of physicians, technicians and researchers, Dr. Eisen’s positive influence will be felt for years to come.
