I spent last week attending the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) Annual Meeting and in this week's episode of RealTalk MS, I'm sharing an overview of what I saw and what I heard.
Each year at the AAN meeting, the American Academy of Neurology and the National MS Society award the John Dystel Prize for MS Research. Joining me on today's podcast is this year's recipient of the Dystel Prize, Professor Xavier Montalban.
We're also talking about how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected MS research and clinical care.
We're sharing encouraging news about two potential disease-modifying therapies.
And we'll share some of the over-arching themes that kept popping up in a number of different meetings, presentations, and conversations during the AAN annual meeting.
We have a lot to talk about! Are you ready for RealTalk MS??!
