For me, the holiday season is a time for joy, celebration, and reflection. And when I reflect upon the advances in MS research that we've seen in the past year, it's hard not to feel encouraged.
2022 will be remembered as the year when the National MS Society published the Pathways to Cures research roadmap, a bold initiative focused on stopping MS progression, restoring lost function, and ending MS forever.
I talked about this pivotal moment in the history of MS research with Dr. Carol Whitacre and Professor Alan Thompson, and they each shared their insights into what the Pathways to Cures research roadmap was all about and what this historic initiative means for people affected by MS.
My conversations with Dr. Whitacre and Professor Thompson were two of the most important conversations that I had in 2022 and, as the year draws to a close, I think they're worth revisiting.
We have a lot to talk about! Are you ready for RealTalk MS??!
