You've heard the statistic before — 50% of the people living with MS will be diagnosed with depression. And research has shown us that some of the most troubling MS symptoms, including fatigue, cognition, and even physical disability, are all made worse by depression.
Unfortunately, among people living with MS, depression is often overlooked, undiagnosed, and left to only get worse. So imagine an app that will tell you when you're heading toward depression before you even feel it. That's not science fiction — it's science.
My guest is Peta Slocombe the Senior V.P. of Corporate Health at mental health technology company, Medibio. We're talking about how Medibio's game-changing technology can improve the quality of life for people living with MS.
We're also talking about iConquer MS — a wide-ranging MS research community that's patient-focused, patient-managed, and patient-driven. Find out how you can be a part of iConquer MS and take an active role in unraveling the riddle of MS.
We'll tell you about about how and why your health insurance premium is going to increase, and how you can test-drive a smartphone app that will better personalize your MS treatment.
We have a lot to talk about! Are you ready for RealTalk MS?
