Imagine being able to see improvement in cognition, motor function, and self-esteem, while enhancing neurological functions like walking and speech without taking another pill or even breaking a sweat.
Joining me to talk about the evidence-based benefits that people living with MS can gain through music and art therapy are Dr. Meera Rastogi, Veronica DeNoma, and Betsy Hartman.
We're also talking about the shocking and deeply concerning outcome of a study used to validate the reliability of a new tool to measure MS caregiver abuse.
We'll tell you how Zoom is working to make telehealth appointments better for everyone.
We're sharing the results of a study that measured the efficacy of a phone-based app to manage anxiety among young people diagnosed with pediatric MS.
Think you might like rock-climbing in the Rockies or whitewater kayaking on the Rogue River in Oregon? We'll give you the details of First Descents' 2022 outdoor adventures that are available at no cost to young adults living with MS.
And we'll remind you that Burgers to Beat MS is happening in Canada this Thursday. Find out how you can be a part of it no matter where you live!
We have a lot to talk about! Are you ready for RealTalk MS??!
