Neuropsychologist Dr. Victoria Leavitt was previously a guest way back on Episode 13 of the FUMS Podcast Show. She's back with us today to talk about her new role as cofounder of eSupport Health, a telehealth company which provides easily accessible online support groups for people with MS.
The eSupport Health model is based on Dr. Leavitt's research into the benefits of social support groups for people with MS. And I think that - in 2020 and the time of COVID - we can all agree that social interaction is more important than ever.
Topics covered include: How the eSupport Health model grew out of the laboratory The recognized positive effect of social support on brain health The moment when Dr. Leavitt recognized the value of a support network who understand the ins and outs of your health condition - and how she was able to quantify the positive impacts of participation in online groups How the initial research grew into eSupport the company eSupport's various subscription plans, which all include a free first month
