It's hard to talk to anyone about anything without talking about the coronavirus. And because the CDC has announced that people with weakened immune systems may be particularly vulnerable to this virus, people affected by MS can feel as though they have even more reason to worry.
My guest is clinical psychologist Dr. Abbey Hughes and we're talking about how people affected by MS should be thinking about the coronavirus, and what they should and shouldn't be doing about it.
You'll also hear about a newly approved MS disease-modifying therapy and another MS disease-modifying therapy that's just been submitted for approval.
We'll tell you how the Affordable Care Act wound its way to the Supreme Court, and we'll look at what's at stake for people affected by MS or any other chronic illness.
