Rachel Horne is a journalist who was diagnosed with MS in 2009. Since then, Rachel has developed a first-hand understanding of the knowledge gaps that remain when it comes to understanding the impact of MS on women's health and the impact of women's health issues on MS.
As Rachel reviewed MS research, she also observed that when it came to acknowledging outstanding MS research, it was rare that a female researcher was singled out to receive recognition for their work. This year, Rachel took action and did something about this unbalanced situation, establishing the Rachel Horne Prize for Women's Research in MS.
Dr. Rhonda Voskuhl has dedicated much of her career to improving our understanding of why MS affects men and women differently. Dr. Voskuhl was honored at the recent 2023 joint ECTRIMS-ACTRIMS meeting as the first recipient of the Rachel Horne Prize for Women's Research in MS.
I met up with Rachel Horne and Dr. Rhonda Voskuhl at the 2023 joint ECTRIMS-ACTRIMS meeting, and you won't want to miss our conversation.
We're also sharing an update on an investigational disease-modifying therapy for people with nonactive secondary progressive MS that's administered at home through a nasal spray.
We'll tell you how artificial intelligence is changing the way that MRI scans are analyzed. And we'll explain why that's a good thing for people living with MS.
And we're sharing the results of a study that demonstrates how obesity impacts symptom severity and quality of life for people living with MS.
We have a lot to talk about! Are you ready for RealTalk MS??!
