This week: ALS drug combo, ‘The Healing Muse,’ mental health

A new drug combination called AMX35 seems to help slow the decline of patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig's Disease. On this week's "HealthLink on Air," Dr. Jenny Meyer discusses the promise of this new treatment. She is a neurologist from Upstate who specializes in neuromuscular medicine.

Also on the program, psychiatrist Christopher Lucas explains how college students from SUNY campuses access mental health services through a network he created. And editor Deirdre Neilen talks about the 20th issue of "The Healing Muse," Upstate Medical University's literary and visual arts journal. Listen this Sunday, November 22 at 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. for more.
