Their website says that Destination Rehab takes an “innovative, out-of-the-box approach to physical therapy.” This week, my guests are Sally McAllister and the founder of Destination Rehab, Dr. Carol-Ann Nelson. Sally is 70 years old and living with primary progressive MS. We're talking about how Sally's work with Dr. Nelson produced life-changing results.
We're also talking about the first study that specifically measures the safety of the Pfizer-BioNtech COVID vaccine for people living with MS.
We'll share the results of another study that suggests that some MS disease-modifying therapies affect Black people differently.
We'll tell you about this year's recipient of the Dystel Prize for MS research.
And we'll give you the details about the MS Society of Canada's upcoming MS CONNECT virtual conference.
We have a lot to talk about! Are you ready for RealTalk MS??!
