When you're living with MS, even the most mundane daily tasks can sometimes be challenging. There are days when opening a door, taking things out of a drawer or a cupboard, or picking something up from the floor can all seem out of reach. Those just happen to be some of the many tasks that a service dog can help you with. This week, attorney Trevor Hardy joins me to talk about the impact that his service dog, Tristan, has had on his life.
We're also reviewing what you need to know about monkeypox and MS.
We'll share the results from a Phase 3 clinical trial for Ublituximab, an investigational anti-cd20 therapy for MS.
We'll talk with Dr. Roberto-Alfonso Dunn about the results of a study that he recently headed up at Tisch Multiple Sclerosis Research Center.
And we'll share results from a study that attempted to identify specific factors at the time of diagnosis that could be predictive of future physical and mental health-related quality of life.
We have a lot to talk about! Are you ready for RealTalk MS??!
