The National MS Society's National Medical Advisory Committee has issued its recommendations for MS disease-modifying therapies and the coronavirus (COVID-19), and we're sharing them in this episode.
You'll also hear about a new disease-modifying therapy that's about to receive FDA approval. We'll tell you about a clinical trial for a potential disease-modifying therapy for progressive MS that fell short of achieving its goals. And you'll hear about study results that indicate there are still a lot of people living with MS who aren't acting in their own best interest.
My guest this week is Dawnia Baynes. Besides being an MS Activist, Dawnia facilitates a very special MS support group, and last month, the Southern-California Nevada Chapter of the National MS Society named Dawnia their Inspirational Person of the Year.
