The guidance for using MS disease-modifying therapies during the COVID-19 pandemic has been updated. My guest is Dr. Aaron Miller, the Chair of the National MS Society’s National Medical Advisory Committee, the Medical Director of the Corinne Goldsmith Dickinson Center for Multiple Sclerosis, and a Professor of Neurology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, and we're talking about the new guidance for each and every MS disease-modifying therapy that's currently available.
Last week, in the middle of the night, protections for people with pre-existing health conditions came under attack. We'll let you know what it all means and what's at stake for every person in the U.S. living with MS.
We're also talking about the results of a study that show more people than ever are exploring alternative medicine in managing their MS symptoms. And we'll tell you about a new online MS Treatment Adherence Resource Center.
In last week's International Progressive MS Alliance global webcast, 3 top MS experts shared very encouraging news about the development of new life-changing treatments for progressive MS. We'll let you know where to find the video replay of the webcast. And while you're checking online video replays, we'll let you know where you can find a replay of the Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers' virtual Patient Education Program.
We have a lot to talk about! Are you ready for RealTalk MS??!
