Early in your MS journey, it's not uncommon to experience minor walking and gait issues. And people living with advanced MS often face more serious mobility challenges. The good news is that rehabilitation can help people on both ends of the “mobility spectrum” improve. But different mobility challenges require different approaches to rehabilitation.
Joining me to talk about mobility rehabilitation for people who are more recently diagnosed with MS as well as rehabilitation for people living with advanced MS are experts Dr. Herb Karpatkin and Cinda Hugos.
RealTalk MS is celebrating its 4th birthday today and we wouldn't be here without you. So before we get too far into this episode, I want to say thank you!!
The Black MS Experience Summit gets underway tomorrow. If you haven't yet registered, we'll tell you how.
And we'll share the details of Episode 2 of The MS Caregiver Conundrum, which debuts Thursday, September 23rd. When your spouse or partner is the person who's living with MS, you have your role as their caregiver but you also have your role as their significant other — their partner in the relationship. For a lot of caregivers, trying to balance those two roles can be challenging. In Episode 2 of The MS Caregiver Conundrum, we'll meet a couple who has not only met that particular challenge, but they've overcome it in amazing fashion.
EJ Levy, the Founder and President of MS Hope for a Cure, joins us with a preview of Big October 2021. This month-long event is designed especially for people affected by MS, and this year, Big October is bigger and better than ever. We'll be sure to tell you how to register for this free event.
The National MS Society recently announced an $8.7 million dollar investment in 29 new research training fellowships, early career awards, and other special initiatives.
