Living through a lockdown can be challenging, and it's resilience that helps us get through life's challenges and recover from setbacks. And while resilience may have become a new topic of conversation for the world at large, when you're living with the uncertainty of MS, you come to realize that resilience is one of the most important tools in your self-care toolbox.
Joining me to talk about building your resilience is Dr. Meghan Beier. Dr. Beier is a Rehabilitation Neuropsychologist and an Assistant Professor of Physical Medicine at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, where she specializes in cognitive rehabilitation and neuropsychological assessment and intervention.
We'll also share the National MS Society's Vaccine Advisory Group's updated vaccine guidance for people living with MS.
We'll tell you about the new oral disease-modifying therapy that just received FDA approval.
You'll hear about the newly-announced partnership between the MS Society and Park Health, and we'll explain how this partnership will deliver personalized one-to-one health coaching to help people live better with MS.
And we'll tell you about the entrepreneur who won the Lyfebulb Bristol Myers Squibb MS Innovation Challenge by setting out to resolve one of his father's most bothersome MS symptoms.
We have a lot to talk about! Are you ready for RealTalk MS??!
