Episode 266: Making Life with MS Easier with Dr. Kathy Zackowski
A lot of you have reached out to me, sharing your thoughts about Selma Blair competing on Dancing with the Stars. Collectively, your emails and DMs illustrate the vast diversity of opinion regarding Selma's latest adventure. In this week's episode, I'm sharing some of my thoughts.
I've always said that MS doesn't affect individuals — it affects families. This week, we're talking about a study that focused on anxiety, depression, and stress communication between people living with MS and their partners.
We'll also tell you about a study that makes the case for using artificial intelligence to accurately predict EDSS scores for people living with MS.
And we'll tell you about a drug that's been studied in clinical trials for cancer that may also show promise as a remyelination therapy.
We have a lot to talk about! Are you ready for RealTalk MS??!
