Last week, more than 9,000 MS research scientists and clinicians from more than 110 countries traveled to Milan to attend the largest MS research conference in the world, the 2023 joint ECTRIMS (European Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis) and ACTRIMS (Americas Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis) annual meeting.
In keeping with a RealTalk MS tradition, just as the meeting was ending and the thousands of attendees were heading for the exits, I connected with the National MS Society's Chief Advocacy, Services, and Science Officer, Dr. Tim Coetzee, to discuss some of the research that captured his attention during the 3-day meeting.
Earlier in the final day of the joint ECTRIMS-ACTRIMS meeting, I connected with Bonnie Higgins, who was in Milan to participate in the ECTRIMS MS Patient Community Day. Bonnie was diagnosed with MS in 1994, and she shared her perspective on this remarkable conference.
We have a lot to talk about! Are you ready for RealTalk MS??!
