Clinic Featured on SMA News Today

The SMA News Today team visited our Clinic and wrote a comprehensive piece on what we do at the Clinic,

especially with our recent work on Spinal Muscular Atrophy.


“Visitors to the Clinic for Special Children (CSC) just outside Strasburg, Pennsylvania,

might be forgiven for thinking they’ve made a wrong turn. Hidden at the end of a long, winding

driveway off Bunker Hill Road, the clinic, which serves the Amish and Mennonite

communities of Lancaster County and beyond, looks and feels like a 19th-century

schoolhouse, with its timber-frame construction and kid-friendly decorations.”
