We're four days into 2022 and, for a lot of us, that means that we're four days into a new diet, four days into a new exercise regimen, or four days into some other life-changing behavior. Making healthy lifestyle changes is good for everyone and there's plenty of evidence that shows these kinds of behavioral changes can be especially beneficial if you're living with MS.
But too often, we see the well-intentioned resolutions that we make in January fade into distant memories by March. It doesn't have to be that way. Joining me to share strategies designed to help us maintain those new lifestyle choices throughout the year is Dr. Brooks Wingo, an Associate Professor at the University of Alabama Birmingham in the Department of Occupational Therapy and the Principal Investigator and Director of the Health Behavior and Disability Lab.
We're also looking back at some of the important MS research milestones that we talked about in 2021.
And we're taking a deep dive into understanding the patient's role in shared decision-making with their neurologist and why that makes where you look for information about MS more important than ever before.
We have a lot to talk about! Are you ready for RealTalk MS??!
