MS affects almost 3 times as many women as men. Have you ever wondered why? When it comes to investigating sex differences in MS, my guest, Dr. Rhonda Voskuhl, has done more than just think about it. And her recent research may have uncovered an MS treatment for women undergoing menopause.
Dr. Voskuhl is the President-elect of the International Organization for the Study of Sex Differences and the Director of the Multiple Sclerosis Program at UCLA.
We're also talking about the potentially game-changing discovery of 3 new MS subtypes. And they were discovered by a machine!
We'll share the results of a study that analyzed the outcomes of over 1,600 people living with MS in North America who contracted COVID-19.
And we'll tell you about a new report that was issued by 30 patient organizations (including the National MS Society) that details the dangers of cheap, non-compliant health insurance plans that are being sold in the U.S.
If you're looking for tools that will help you stay positive during challenging times, we'll give you the details about the slate of programs that Can Do MS is offering throughout the month of April.
We have a lot to talk about! Are you ready for RealTalk MS??!
