He returned to Connecticut for an MD and a PhD in Neuroscience, where he completed his medicine internship, neurology residency, neuromuscular fellowship, and masters degree in clinical research science. He has won awards for teaching and for patient care, including: best neurology teacher at Duke; Health Care Hero; Strength, Hope, and Caring Award; America’s Best Doctors; the American Academy of Neurology's Kenneth M. Viste, Jr., MD, Patient Advocate of the Year Award, and the ALS Association's Rasmussen Award for ALS Patient Advocate of the Year.
Ricks has received research grants, participated in clinical trials, and published more than 70 articles. He was also a past chair of the North American ALS Research Group, and leader of the international ALSUntangled program, which utilizes social networking to investigate alternative and off-label treatment options for patients with ALS.
We look forward to seeing you at the event!
