Now that Harvard researchers have presented compelling evidence that MS is triggered by the Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV), what does it mean in terms of ending MS in the world? What does it mean for people already living with MS? And how will this announcement impact MS research?
Joining me to unpack the details and implications of this research breakthrough is the Executive Vice-President of Research for the National MS Society, Dr. Bruce Bebo.
We're also talking about new research from Stanford University that shows how EBV triggers MS.
We'll share the results of a study that shows cognitive dysfunction can increase the risk of death for people living with MS.
We'll give you the details of the $600,000 grant that was awarded to develop a behavioral therapy intervention designed to improve the quality of life for people living with MS.
And if you'd like to be able to say, “I helped develop a cure for MS,” we'll tell you how.
We have a lot to talk about! Are you ready for RealTalk MS??!
