It's MS Awareness Week and my guest is Marti Hines. Marti is a successful event producer, entrepreneur, film producer, and director. She was diagnosed with MS in 2018, and Marti has been very transparent in sharing the highs and lows of her MS journey on her social channels.
Like so many people living with MS, Marti has an amazing energy and a seemingly endless supply of resilience. You're going to enjoy meeting her.
We're also talking about why increasing diversity in clinical trials is so vital. And we're highlighting the Consensus Statement on Health Equity in Clinical Trials and Real-World Evidence Data Collection that was released by the National MS Society's Corporate Healthcare Roundtable.
You'll learn about the Cost Plus Drug Company, billionaire Mark Cuban's effort to disrupt the prescription drug market by offering generic drugs that truly are affordable.
And we'll share the results of a study that shows that a keto diet may be beneficial for people living with relapsing MS.
We have a lot to talk about! Are you ready for RealTalk MS??!
