A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Disconnected Patient Files

Please take a look at this article (thanks to @paullikeme and @epatientdave for the tip) --

Now imagine how constructive it would be for physicians to supply a similar template to all newly diagnosed ALS patients to fill in some history of symptoms, of health, and of environmental exposures.

It might even be therapeutic for people to write things down in a manner that could be shared and that could contribute to the set of clues that scientists and other patients need to deal with ALS.

Simple. Visual. Direct. Valuable. Four words that are seldom seen together when dealing with ALS.
